The Value of a Volunteer


A few weeks ago, I wrote about a some of the grants that DinoMights was submitting. I asked people to pray that God would be a good provider for DinoMights. Well I'm glad to say that a very important grant came through today! Thanks for praying!


Tomorrow is our volunteer appreciation party. The three of us on staff went out shopping for the party. What a fun time. It is going to be a great party. We are going to have Bison Burgers, veggies, fruit, chips and homemade guacamole.

When you think about volunteers and what they give it is worth about twice as much as the biggest grant that we get in a year. If we were to pay our volunteers $10 per hour, just for the school year, it would equal almost $40,000 . . . and when the year is finished it only costs us a Bar-B-Que. That is a pretty generous gift from our volunteers!
