I picked up my son from an incoming flight at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport last week, and witnessed a remarkable display of spontaneous patriotism. As each uniformed U.S. Armed Services man or woman came up the elevator to the baggage claim area, the fifty or so people waiting to meet their respective air passenger broke into spontaneous applause, regardless if they were waiting for a soldier or not! The service personnel and their families were humbled by the applause for their homecoming.

Volunteerism is at the heart of America, or some might say that volunteerism is the heart of America. The 2008-2009 SCS Annual Report celebrated our volunteers who donated more than 44,000 hours of service to our seniors in need. This annual report can be found on the SCS web site, as well as numerous opportunities for volunteerism – whether hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. Please join us as we celebrate the lives of our senior citizen clients – and we’ll save our applause for you!
