April is National Volunteer Month. Who knew, right? Even if you’re not prepared to formally recognize your school’s volunteers (which often occurs as the school year is wrapping up), it’s a great opportunity to give a shout-out to the folks who offer their gifts of time. Verbal acknowledgments and handwritten notes are quick and easy. If you have a bit more time, pair one of the following items with the provided message:
hand cream—You are super at lending a HAND! Thank you!
chocolate chip cookie(s)—Thanks for CHIPping in!
fresh flower—I couldn’t have PICKED a better volunteer!
coffee—Thanks a LATTE for helping us out!
Lifesaver candy roll—You are such a LIFESAVER! Thank you!
Do you have other ideas? Please share!
