Picture The Hub: Giving Time
These portraits capture a slice of volunteerism in Westwood: a variety of volunteer roles and organizations; some new members and some who have volunteered for decades; many hold leadership positions in their organizations while others simply enjoy participating in the mission of their group.
Individuals were nominated by members of the community. Each was invited to share their personal stories of volunteerism and the undeniable impact and benefit volunteering has on their own lives and their community at large.
It is the hope of Celebrate Westwood that by seeing the faces of neighbors and friends, and by clicking each portrait to read their unique stories, that other residents will be inspired to volunteer their time, talent, and treasure.
Portraits will be on display at the Westwood Public Library from March 14 - April 30. A closing event and Volunteer Night will be hosted at the library on Wednesday, April 27. Please register to attend: tinyurl.com/westwoodvolunteer
