We’re trying something new: putting the photos our wonderful volunteers take on our website! You may be used to seeing them on Facebook, but we’re going to try putting them here and sharing them to our social media channels. This means you’ll be able to find links to them on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. If you like it (or don’t), please let us know in the comments!

A Special Message for Our Volunteers

By | Volunteering

This week is National Volunteer Week, and nonprofit organizations across the country will be taking time to thank the people who make so much of their work possible: the people who spend countless hours working for the organizations they care about.

At Back Bay Mission, we know that we’re blessed to have the best volunteers in the world.

Over the last few years, thousands of people have come from more than 40 states to serve with us on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. And, of course, countless people from the Gulf Coast have joined us to strengthen neighborhoods, seek justice, and transform lives.

You’ve rehabilitated homes. You’ve walked through the food pantry with people. You’ve cleaned showers and done laundry. You’ve provided a ministry of presence. You’ve organized shrimp boils, attended meetings, and served as our ambassador.

We know that we couldn’t do our work without you. During this National Volunteer Week, please take a moment to reflect on your time at Back Bay Mission and remember the people who you served. And please know that their lives are better because of you.

Thank you.
