Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA – To celebrate and commemorate National Volunteer Appreciation Week, Keystone Mission staff surprised their regular volunteers with shirts that reveal the truth about their volunteers – they’re the best!  

“Our volunteers are the heartbeat of what we do. Whether it is at our Transformation or Innovation Centers, the depth of commitment they make in the lives of our guests is immeasurable,” says Kathy Regan, Operations & Program Director of Wilkes-Barre Innovation Center.  

Volunteers are crucial to aiding our guests and residents toward life transformation from daily tasks to teaching a life skills class or bible study.  

“Any day I come here is an awesome day!” says Holly Spece, a Wilkes-Barre Innovation Center volunteer. Spece is a regular volunteer at the Innovation Center who sits and talks with guests, assists in the Emergency Shelter – Code Blue when in season, and supports any special event like the Easter brunch.   

“Volunteerism is a crucial part of what we do here at Keystone Mission,” says Danielle O. Keith-Alexandre, CEO & Executive Director. “The individuals who give of their time, talents, and resources to our guests and residents have not gone unnoticed and take on a crucial part of our team. During this special week, Keystone Mission is showing appreciation to the men and women who freely do so much for our organization.”
