Summer Program Volunteers

Yesterday we talked about what the volunteers did during the summer program, today we wanted to share who these volunteers were.  This summer we had 101 volunteers come and join in the efforts of the PVs. These PVs represented 18 different states and ranged in age from four to 80 years old. Twenty-six volunteers came as individuals, while 75 came part of a couple or family. To be completely transparent, we should say that two of the volunteers who came as individuals got engaged while they were in WV, so when they come back they will be changing categories. Congratulations again Rob and Rebecca!

One of the interesting things about the PV Community is the diversity in the group. Not only do the volunteers come from all over the country, but they represent many walks of life. Just to list a few: farmer, lawyer, architect, teacher, engineer, student, nurse, stay at  home parent, business owner, editor, songwriter, performer, counselor, coach, retiree, mechanic, zoo keeper. Imagine being able to sit down each night and have conversations and laughs with such a group. It is one of the things that makes the PV community so unique!
