The Give An Hour Nonprofit
October 26, 2011

Give An Hour has inspired me to believe in "the power of one". Give An Hour was formed as a result of 1 young girl's observation of a homeless veteran, which inspired 1 woman to found an organization where 1 person can donate 1 hour of their time, expertise, skills etc to better the lives of our military personnel and their families.

I haven't personally experienced the services provided by Give An Hour, but I have benefited by volunteering with them. As stated above, this organization renewed my belief in "the power of one". I am so grateful that they provide a place where I can easily donate my time and skills to a great cause. Watching this organization grow from an idea into a full-fledged non-profit that is providing mental health services to some of the most deserving citizens in the USA, definitely makes me feel proud.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I began volunteering my time with Give An Hour in an administrative capacity about 5 years ago. In the grand scheme of things, I feel I play a small role, but it's a role that is needed and one that I can commit to. .
