LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The United Way honored those who make a positive impact in the community.
Wednesday was the 2018 Volunteer Luncheon.
It gives non-profit organizations a chance to recognize the volunteers who make their missions possible.
Agencies invited volunteers to a special lunch at the Outpost in Lafayette and each was given a certificate of appreciation.
United Way's Director of Volunteer Engagement Amy Wood said it's important to take the time to acknowlege those who make a difference.
"Volunteerism is the heart of non-profits," she said. "They cannot exist without volunteers, and we're really, really fortunate to have a great community that we have so many caring people like you can see in the room today."
Agencies also nominated volunteers for Shining Star Awards. The special honors were also handed out at Wednesday's luncheon.
