Volunteers are an essential part of any community association. Enlisting and retaining enthusiastic, quality volunteers can be a challenge, but following these steps can help create long-term partnerships.
A homeowners association in Charlottesville, Va., has transformed its Little Free Library into a pantry stocked with free food for neighbors who are struggling—a gesture of community goodwill during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As difficult as the COVID-19 pandemic has been, this crisis has brought people together to find solutions and offer support. It is showing the true strength and value of community.
