Have you ever poured your heart into giving feedback, never to hear a peep about how your input was received or acted on? Well, your Young Souls Board is not going to let that happen!
Back in August, 64 of you filled out the Young Souls survey. Great job! Thank you! What what did we do? Right off the bat in September, we connected everyone to volunteer and social justice opportunities they expressed interest in. We…
- Connected 14 potential ushers, greeters, and counters with Reeve Tyndall
- Connected 14 potential religious educators with Dolores Miller
- Shared joining instructions with 19 people interested in the All Souls Caring Network (contact is Rev. Rebecca Parker while Rev. Susan Newman-Moore is on sabbatical)
