On Thursday August 4, 2016 eighty of Interfaith Social Services’ volunteers and their loved ones assembled for an evening of food, fun and recognition. Hingham’s Sons of Italy Hall hosted Interfaith Social Services annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Guests enjoyed a lovely dinner catered by Fasanos of Braintree followed by an array of delicious desserts prepared by Interfaith’s staff and board members. The focal point of the evening was the induction ceremony into Interfaith’s Volunteer Hall of Fame. The Matti Lang Volunteer Hall of Fame is named after one of Interfaith’s most dedicated volunteers who gave decades of his life selflessly serving Interfaith’s clients. The honor of being inducted into the Hall of Fame is bestowed upon those volunteers who have been serving within the organization regularly for at least one year. Their names are inscribed on a plaque which hangs in Interfaith’s foyer.
After the induction the evening’s festivities concluded with volunteers participating in a fun and competitive round of trivia.
Each week over 100 volunteers serve within Interfaith’s programs. Last year these volunteers gave 23,349 hours in donated time serving Interfaith’s clients. Volunteers are the heart and soul of Interfaith Social Services.
