On Sunday, May 20th, Hand in Paw hosted their annual Volunteer Appreciation Party as a thank you and to show some love to our stellar Therapy Teams and volunteers. It's a great way for everyone to mingle, reconnect, or meet new fellow volunteers and staff.
The party was filled with great food which was graciously donated from the following vendors: Taziki’s, Ashley Mac’s, Chicken Salad Chick, Cookie Fix, Black Sheep Kitchen, Ousler’s, Magic Muffin, and Jim N’ Nick’s. Along with the yummy treats, a photo booth was set up with adorable props the guests could use to get some cute pictures with their pets. While thankfully having great weather, tents and chairs were set up outside as a place to mingle with each other while eating under some shade.
Guests arrived between 4-6 pm, and some of our very own therapy dogs made an appearance! They also got to see a glimpse of the new building which is under construction. As the guests left, they were given gift bags from Hand in Paw which included items like frisbees, t-shirts, sunglasses, and bandanas as a thank you for all they do to help our program. The party was a hit and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our wonderful staff and volunteers.
