Volunteers Honored at Annual Luncheon
The IRC in Los Angeles honored volunteers during their annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, on Friday, July 23. Volunteers had the opportunity to meet and greet other IRC volunteers, as well as mingle with the staff.
IRC Los Angeles Executive Director, Thomas Hill, addressed those in attendance, highlighting several volunteer achievements, as well as emphasizing the importance of volunteerism at the IRC.
“Volunteers are integral to everything we do here at the IRC,” said Thomas Hill, IRC Los Angeles Executive Director. “They [volunteers] provide more than a thousand hours of assistance to refugees and asylees in the area, quarterly, and more than 3000 people are actively volunteering for IRC across the nation. They help because they believe in our mission, because they believe that refugees and asylees deserve a chance at success. It was a pleasure both professionally and personally to be able to recognize the great contribution they make to the organization through their partnership with IRC’s Los Angeles programs.”
