We all know that appreciating our volunteers is important, and Christmas is one of the best times to show them how much you value them! As you plan your volunteer appreciation, here are a few ideas and tips to help you make their season merry and bright.
- Up your Sunday breakfast game. Whether you provide a breakfast snack for your volunteers weekly or not, amp it up at Christmas to remind them how important they are to you and to your ministry.
- You may be thinking about a Christmas party or volunteer dinner. December is a CRAZY month, so if you’re going to throw them a party or ask them to come to an event, make it something they can bring their whole family to. Don’t add to their stress.
- As always, a small gift can express your appreciation too. Let them know they’re worth more than a pot of gold, that you appreciate their involve”mint” in your ministry, or use simple candy bars to remind them how much you appreciate them.(Psst – check out these ideas for volunteer appreciation gifts. And these budget-friendly ideas too!)
I hope this will help you spread a little Christmas cheer to your volunteers this season!
