Happy National Volunteer Week! Today through April 24 we celebrate and recognize our amazing volunteers. This week is not only about celebration but is also a week of acknowledgment. We are proud to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, and energy to making a difference in our community.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our day-to-day lives considerably. 2020 was a year of uncertainty but one thing that was certain was that we could count on our incredible volunteers! At CLUES we view our team of volunteers as invaluable, they are a part of every aspect of our organization, and we would not be able to serve our community without our wonderful volunteer team. In 2020, our team of 404 total volunteers served a total of 14,707 hours! CLUES is fortunate to benefit from the passion, commitment, and talent of so many people. To all of our volunteers who give so generously and help us fulfill our mission, thank you for your efforts to "advance social and economic equity and wellbeing for Latinos by building upon our strengths and cultures, uplifting our community, and activating leadership for systemic change." To learn more about our volunteers by the numbers, please see our 2020 Volunteer Contributions document below.

As we continue to take precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19, our National Volunteer Week celebrations will be virtual. Please stay tuned to our Social Media channels throughout the week we will be highlighting some of our amazing volunteers as a thank you for all that they do! We can’t thank you enough! ¡GRACIAS!
