More than 210 volunteers contributed a combined 3,613 hours during this quarter, an increase from the previous quarter which accumulated just over 3,000 volunteer hours. This equates to more than $103,130 savings to the city thanks to our volunteers (per the independent sector Value of Volunteer Time; https://independentsector.org/value-of-volunteer-time-2021/.)
Below are the three departments with the highest volunteer participation, according to Q1 volunteer hours:
- Animal Shelter
- Parks and Recreation
The top contributor of volunteer hours continues to be the animal shelter with over 2,716 volunteer hours this quarter. Volunteer hours for the Parks and Recreation department include classes at the senior center and city events such as the Tree Lighting Event, which typically drive volunteer activity up in the first quarter. This year, volunteers contributed nearly 130 hours to the success of the Tree Lighting event. Other activities included park development efforts at several city parks including Memorial, Eldridge and Brazos River Park.
Police department hours include CAST activities like regular visibility and house watch patrol and the Tree Lighting event. Volunteers also contributed to general administrative assignments at Municipal Court and City Hall.
