"Ford volunteers are hardworking and enthusiastic as they head out to make a positive difference for our neighbors in need," said Janet Lawson, director, Ford Volunteer Corps. "Our volunteers often find themselves deeply moved by the stories and the people they come to help. It's an uplifting experience for all involved, because the good feeling of community and sharing goes both ways."
