Volunteers

VOLUNTEERS

Valued Beyond Measure. That’s how we view our Volunteers at Michael’s Giving H.A.N.D. They are compassionate, hard-working members of the MGH family, ready to serve in any capacity to get the job done. Some knew Michael well and serve to honor his memory. Others know a “Michael” and serve to make a difference in the lives of people they may never meet. Our Volunteers allow us to maximize and direct our donations toward our community programs and services because they help us with the administrative tasks, event logistics, fundraising, marketing campaigns and so much more.
