A Note of Appreciation to Our Volunteers

Dear Volunteers, 

All of us at Britepaths and the Financial Empowerment Center at South County would like to thank you for volunteering your time across our various programs. Our programs can only succeed with your help. Not only do you positively impact the lives of our clients, but you are an extension of our team, and we could not be more grateful. 

In 2021, we had the pleasure of collaborating with 366 unique individuals who have dedicated 4,676 hours of their time to our programs. We would not be able to touch as many lives in Northern Virginia without the assistance of our volunteers. 

Once again, Britepaths thanks you for your efforts and contribution of time from our earliest days as Our Daily Bread through the trials and complications of the COVID-19 pandemic. We wish you a Happy Volunteer Appreciation Month and we cannot wait to continue to work with you and impact the lives of many!
