One more thank you to all AOCS volunteers

While Volunteer Week has officially ended, AOCS knows that our volunteers' work happens year-round. We are so grateful for the hard work and dedication of all the volunteers we featured this week and many more beyond whom we could highlight. Here’s a quick recap of who we featured, which we hope will serve as a virtual round of applause for all AOCS volunteers.
