Did you know the national estimated cost of volunteer time is $21.79 per hour? That means each hour volunteers spend lending a helping hand saves agencies hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Wow!
At Limited Brands, we are dedicated to donating our time, talent and treasure to making a difference. It matters how we play the game, and this year our home office associates made a huge impact during National Volunteer Week in April.
“It was eye opening to learn that there was such a place that would help people get their homes together by helping them furnish a house through this program.” –Mary Pugh, Furniture Bank, Columbus
“The children are always a delight to be around and the staff is always easy and great to work with." –Alice Hsu, Virginia Day Nursery, New York
“It was fun to pretend to have a different job than we do on a daily basis and interact with the kids. One of the girls on our team said it was like being a kid again and playing house or school.” J -Teri Crawford, LifeTown, Columbus
“We had a great time building together. There was much laughter and progress, quite the wonderful day in my opinion!...thank you for the chance to put my skills to good use serving the community, it is wonderful working for an organization that cares this much.”-Christopher Armbruster, Habitat for Humanity, Columbus
Although National Volunteer Week has come and gone, the spirit of volunteerism does not fade. We are dedicated to using our time and talents year-round to make a difference in the communities where we work and live.
