Dear <<First Name>>,
This is what's happening remotely at HopeSpring this week. 
The week of April 18 -24th is National Volunteer Week in Canada!!
At HopeSpring, we are joining in the celebration and featuring our volunteer ambassadors all week. Without our volunteers, it would be impossible to offer all of the services and programs that HopeSpring offers our community. 
Watch our social channels all week for their stories. Also, this week we are launching a new feature site for our volunteer focus(details coming this week). We hope that you are social too, continue the conversation here.
