Over the weekend, participants at the IAMC Spring 2015 Professional Forum volunteered their time at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.
As the IAMC forums are always an educational and memorable experience for attendees, there is never a more fulfilling experience than the IAMC Volunteer Service Projects. Over the years, forum attendees have planted trees, built homes, and directly delivered support to those who need it the most. This year, the service project volunteers cleaned offices, organized food and supply storage, and assisted with food preparations at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.
Founded in 1971, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has provided food, clothing, and showers to thousands of families in the valley. On an annual basis, the mission provides more than 175,000 hot meals to individuals that are homeless and needy. For more information about the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, please take the time to visit their website.
With another successful IAMC Volunteer Service Project in the books, many of the attendees are already looking forward to the next opportunity to give back to their own communities. Whether on a grand scale, or on the individual level, any and all volunteer work is vital. As the ancient Greek fabulist, Aesop, wrote, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
