Volunteers matter...it's how the church is able to be the church. We know putting numbers to volunteer hours will never do them justice, but it is just one way for us to show the contributions individuals and churches make in our communities. This estimate helps to quantify the enormous value volunteers provide. In New Jersey alone, the value of volunteer labor is $31.41/hour. That's significant! Help us tell the story of how your church...your members are making a difference in YOUR community...because every community owns the disaster.
