What would the world be like without volunteers?  With the 2014 ACA quickly drawing to a close and making way for the 2015 ACA Campaign to begin, now seems like a perfect time to thank the many people who gave their time and talents to ensure the success of the 2014 ACA.  From the volunteers who gave the Lay Witness Talks to the parish volunteers who spent hours counting money and filling out reports, your contributions are invaluable to making the Annual Catholic Appeal happen each year.

Two volunteers who have touched the ACA here at the Pastoral Center are Elaine Perko and Deena Dufault.  Both Elaine and Deena are members of Holy Family Parish in Yakima.  Once a month from February through October, these ladies would come to help prepare the monthly ACA statements to be sent to pledgers throughout the Diocese.  They would manage the machines that would stuff and seal the statements and keep them organized by ZIP Code so that the Diocese could receive a bulk mail discount.  Their willingness and enthusiasm throughout the many paper jams and hours of standing is much appreciated!  Throughout the course of the year, over 22,000 statements were sent out with their help.

Thank you to both Elaine and Deena for their hours of volunteer time to bring the ACA to every part of the Diocese!
