COJ's appreciation event was held at Un-Wind in Hyde Park, Cincinnati, on June 20th to celebrate individuals and volunteers helping children, teens, adults and families who grieve in our community. Volunteers, staff, and directors were present for an evening of food, prizes, presentations, and gifts for all the hard work accomplished over the past year.
From facilitating groups, helping with events, managing the day to day chores, mailings, calling, fixing, and just being present to those who grieve is a gift in itself is such a generous gift. COJ wants to thank all of you for your time and talent and countless hours you put in to help us be successful.
We sometimes take for granted
In the rush of all we do,
And forget to say a special thanks
To volunteers like you!
So we send this note to tell you
How much all you do means,
Your gifts of time and of yourself
Are special ones indeed.
