April is here, and that means it’s Volunteer Appreciation Month! We’re so thankful for our incredible volunteers. Your hard work, dedication and love for our sisterhood is what keeps us strong! Let’s take advantage of this time to acknowledge anyone who has been a mentor, advisor or supporter in our lives. Whether they are alumnae, CAB, NLT or just a friendly face, these advisors are essential in helping us succeed!
We’re always being challenged. Whether it’s in Kappa Delta or in our personal lives, our advisors are there through it all. They play a vital role in ensuring our growth! They spend countless hours of their time attending chapter meetings, helping us plan events and guiding us along the way. Here are a few ways we can show our appreciation for all they do:
1. Introduce yourself: If you haven’t had the chance to meet your advisor, introduce yourself! The more conversations you have, the more you will learn that your advisors were once just like you, what you have in common and what you can learn from her.
2. Just say thanks: A simple “thank you” can make anyone’s day. Next time you see your advisor, share your gratitude for everything she does for you and your chapter.
3. Honor her with a virtual “thank-you” card: Say “thank you” and send some love to a Kappa Delta volunteer you know by making a donation to the Kappa Delta Foundation! In return, the foundation will send a digital Kappa Delta greeting of your choosing. You can even include a personalized message! Be sure to tell them you’re grateful for all their time and hard work.
4. Write a thank-you letter: Who doesn’t love snail mail? Encourage your chapter to come together and write thank-you notes for your advisors. You can even make it a sisterhood event!
5. Treat her to coffee: Reach out to your advisor, and invite her to go out for coffee. Great conversations can happen over a cup of joe!
Whether you text every day or meet once a month, it’s important to let your volunteers know how appreciated they are! Even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference. And, to all the advisors who don’t hear it enough, we want to say THANK YOU!
