Volunteer Square loves to recognize exceptional individuals that donate their time and energy to nonprofit organizations across Connecticut. These volunteers make a true impact in the lives of others. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, annual volunteer recognition events had to be canceled so we wanted to offer an alternative way to honor volunteers. We reached out to all the volunteer coordinators we work with and asked them to nominate volunteers. We are thrilled to share all the wonderful stories here and on our website, over the next several weeks. If you would like nominate a volunteer, please fill out this Nomination Form.

Here is what Hannah had to say about Debbie:
Debbie has rallied her neighbors to help us feed families in our programs who have been affected by COVID 19. She has gathered and dropped off groceries and supplies endlessly over the last few months. In addition, she is a mentor in our program and has remained in touch with her mentee, a 3rd grader, over video chat every week.
