Volunteer Programs

SCHRA services would not be possible without volunteers. We appreciate every one. Our sentiments are best expressed with these quotes from those who have set the example for service:

"Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve… You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Citizen service is the very American idea that we meet our challenges not as isolated individuals but as members of a true community, with all of us working together. Our mission is nothing less than to spark a renewed sense of obligation, a new sense of duty, a new season of service…" — former President Bill Clinton

"The magnitude of our social problems will require that all citizens and institutions make a commitment to volunteering as a way of life and as a primary opportunity create needed change."— George Romney, former Michigan governor

"We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give." – Winston Churchill

"How can we expect our children to know and experience the joy of giving unless we teach them that the greater pleasure in life lies in the art of giving rather than receiving." – James Cash Penny

"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." — Booker T. Washington

"A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm." — Henrik Ibsen, poet and playwright

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." — Aesop

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has." — Margaret Mead, anthropologist

"You cannot help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself." — General H. Norman Schwarzkopf

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."  – Anne Frank, Diary of a Young Girl

​"There is no better investment of time and money that in the life of a child. They are the future."  – Alma Powell
