THE VOLUNTEERS

This poem is dedicated to all faithful volunteers. We could not make it without your willingness to serve. Thank you, Loyd Taylor











There are some special people that we know
Found in needy places across this land,
They're people that selflessly serve others
Always ready to lend a helping hand.

We may know them by their many titles
Chief bottle washer to soup kitchen cook;
They may be young or old, male or female,
In serving others each has found a nook.

Kind-hearted helpers, tireless volunteers
Who lend a hand in every capacity;
They seek no earthly reward, no fanfare,
Give help, no matter the adversity.

Here's to all of the wonderful people
Who unselfishly have chosen to serve,
May these words offer some recognition
And give the praise, which they rightly deserve.

Jesus said; “For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name… he shall not lose his reward.” Mark 9:41
