POEM: Volunteers at Bounce Back

Let the sunshine in — be a volunteer

and people will smile from ear to ear!

We must give credit to those who volunteer

at Bounce Back

to make it a happy place,

filled with God's grace.

The priest knows,

because sunshine follows him

wherever he goes.

Visit people,

and they will bounce back

because you took the time to show you care,

by just being there.

Say a prayer when you leave,

and hold their hand and let them know

God loves them in their time of need.

I will be thankful for the volunteers

to the end of my days.

What more can I say!

God bless you all!
