Much Love for One Brick

We wanted to share some nice notes we’ve been getting from our non-profits.  Thank you, volunteers, for all you do.  YOU are making a difference!

“On behalf of the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago, I want to thank all the One Brick volunteers who helped us with the April 3 ‘Easter Egg Hunt and Family Brunch’ at the High Ridge YMCA.  Jill Grimshaw, Executive Director, was so impressed by your creativity and enthusiasm as you filled 480 Easter eggs with goodies, created an egg hunt area in the gymnasium, decorated egg hunt paper bags for the children, helped wiht registration of the participants, and led fun games for the children and families.  You were a big reason the event was so much fun for the families who attended.  Jill also reported that this year’s Easter Bunny was late, so you graciously said one of the One Brick volunteers would take on the role at next year’s event!

We consider ourselves very fortunate to count One Brick among our most steadfast volunteer partners, and we look forward to future opportunities to work with you in support of our vital, community-based YMCA programs and services.

Linda Dean, Director of Volunteerism
