April 15 – 21, 2018 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

Since January 2018, more than 450 volunteers and groups throughout Central Florida served over 13,300 hours!

We honor the many volunteers who share the light of Christ through their ordinary lives, in extraordinary ways. Some do it through immense feats of sacrificial love, but most of do it through small actions that make a lifetime of difference. To all of our volunteers who share their gifts at Catholic Charities, thank you!
