“The dedication of our volunteers is so important to the success of our programs and events,” said Director, Brooke Prouty. “Without them we couldn’t do what we do to serve the businesses and community of Uptown. In 2017 alone, volunteers have clocked over 1,100 volunteer hours. To put it into perspective the value of one hour of volunteering is $24.14, meaning that our volunteers are a $27k a year asset. We can’t thank them enough!”
