First Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event

On Thursday, October 17, 2019, UPward Design For Life Founder/President, Dionne Williamson, and the Board of Directors hosted its first Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event to thank all the volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the first year and ten months of the organizations’ existence, to help furnish homes and transform lives for those in need.

Volunteering with UDFL consists of picking up donations from donors, organizing inventory at the warehouse, taking dishware home to wash, refurbishing donated items when needed and of course furnishing homes for individuals and families. To all the 30 volunteers who have helped change the lives of the roughly 30 families we’ve served, we THANK YOU! A very special thank recognition goes out to Sufana Wajed, Frank Movalli and the Williamson Family: Andre Sr., Imani, Malia and Andre Jr., for going above and beyond with extensive volunteer time and efforts to make the work we do so meaningful.

Thank you, to the UDFL Board Members, for your wonderful contributions toward making our volunteers feel special and appreciated. We look forward to celebrating our volunteers again next year!
