PATH Says "Thank You" to Volunteers

Volunteers are at the heart of so many successful charities. Wednesday, during National Volunteer Appreciation Week, PATH took the time to say "thank you."

PATH, or People Attempting To Help, has about 400 volunteers in its 17 community programs.

They enjoyed a celebration luncheon at Tyler's Rose Garden Center. From Coats For Kids to a home ownership program, the volunteers make sure everything at PATH works smoothly.

PATH Volunteer Director Rachel Ashcraft says, "We only have 17 staff members, so the volunteers run the place and we wouldn't be anything without them."

Terri Jost, a longtime volunteer says, "The people just really appreciate it, and you have done something that they make you feel like you're changing their life. And, it just makes you feel really good."

This is National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and PATH's theme for the celebration is "Angels in Action."
