Notes From a SACHA Volunteer

Standard

Found this awesome note from Take Back the Night event volunteer Diane on my desk today.

ps

She wrote, “I had a really great time at last year’s [Take Back the Night] event and just knowing that the people at SACHA work hard at trying to support survivors and fight violence against women is quite awesome.”

I am constantly blown away by the kindness of SACHA volunteers.
