June 19, 2014 – Carroll Lutheran Village held an open house reception on May 31 for volunteers who volunteered with the Village in 2013, as well as residents who volunteered in the greater community.
In 2013, 450 volunteers (19 students, 265 residents and 166 members of the greater community) documented 20,643 hours – time valued at $465,500. About half of those hours were directly involved with resident activities, one-to-one visits and the Residents Association Council. Volunteers also served on the Board of Trustees and various committees, supported the chaplaincy and the former Friends of the Village auxiliary, operated two gift shops, assisted the marketing department, and provided clerical and administrative support.
A separate luncheon was held on June 12 for 65 volunteers who documented 100 hours or more last year. This group of volunteers recorded more than half of the total volunteer hours documented, and each met the criteria to receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
