Here at FLOC we like to take every opportunity possible to show our volunteers how much we appreciate all of their hard work and dedication. This appreciation usually takes the form of verbal praise or a simple “thank you” note, but more recently it took the form of a volunteer happy hour at a local bar & restaurant, Mellow Mushroom. (This marks our first volunteer event for the school year).
Volunteers from almost all of our NTP programs and at least one volunteer from our Scholars program showed up to support FLOC and mingle with one another. The atmosphere at Mellow Mushroom was fun and upbeat. Throughout the course of the evening, about 30-35 volunteers stopped by to enjoy pizza, drinks, and conversation with their fellow volunteers.
These events are a great way for our volunteers to network with one another and get acquainted with the FLOC community outside of tutoring. We are glad to say that this particular happy hour had a great turnout, with a mixture of staff, tutors and other volunteers. It’s a small way for us to say thank you, once again, for all that you do.
