Proceeding as Anticipated
Reviewing for Improvement
Please note that Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 refer to the first, second, third, and fourth quarters of the Fiscal Year. The City’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1st – September 30th and is denoted by FY.
In the 1st quarter, 691 volunteers served a total of 6,202 hours. Volunteer trends tend to be seasonal, so this measure would be considered "on target" if the measure were at 25% of its target (or 6,561 volunteer hours). For this reason, the status color is amber as it is not on target but still has potential to meet its target.
Factors that impacted 1st quarter’s volunteer numbers include the Christmas Tree Lighting and the cancellation of the New Year’s Eve event. Over half of the volunteers scheduled to assist during the Christmas Tree Lighting cancelled due to inclement weather. Additionally, the City tends to receive increased volunteer participation during the New Year’s Eve event, but the event was cancelled this year. In the upcoming quarter, the City hopes to see increased volunteer participation associated with the Cullinan Park Cleanup and Cultural Kite Fest.
Total volunteer hours include all volunteer hours recorded in the City of Sugar Land volunteer tracking system.
