Grateful for Our Volunteers!

SAIL Volunteers contribute hundreds of hours each year to help fellow members, staff, and our organization as a whole.

To show our thanks, we invited volunteers to a recognition event held at Oakwood Village University Woods. Nearly 60 people attended and enjoyed the fun music, great food, and time to socialize with fellow volunteers. 

SAIL volunteers are true champions of the values we hold dear—one of which is “independence through connections" and we are grateful for each and everyone of them!
