HON.org Tip: Slow down, you move too fast…

This sentiment from one of the greatest 60’s pop songs, The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) is just as relevant today at Hands On Nashville as it was 40 years ago.  We often get calls the day after you volunteer, wondering why your hours aren’t posted yet. We applaud your enthusiasm! But we want to take a moment to explain the process and encourage you to slow down (and make the morning last).  The reason your hours aren’t up yet is simple:  Hands On Nashville projects are managed by people!  HON Volunteer Leaders – those dedicated souls who commit to leading a volunteer project on a regular basis – lead the projects, and these same people are responsible for updating volunteer hours.  So at the end of the day, when the food is sorted, the garden has been weeded and another great meal has been served, sit back.  Relax.  Your Volunteer Leader is probably doing the same thing.  Take a beat to reflect on what you accomplished, and please wait two weeks for your hours to be updated.  Thank you for your volunteerism!
