Redding, Calif.-- Hundreds of volunteers who donated thousands of hours of their time were honored today at the Shasta County Sheriff’s office Annual Volunteer Appreciation luncheon.
Today’s event highlighted several different organizations and role models that gave their time volunteering for the entire community.
In total around 30 different organizations attended today’s event that honored all those who volunteer.
These individuals included Dale Kendall who today said “anybody that will give up their time in this day and age and do it for fun and it’s hard to believe I mean these people are just incredible” Kendall is a member of the asphalt cowboys which is a group dedicated to putting on events in Redding to help promote the Redding rodeo and other local events.
They also help out with whatever the sheriff’s department needs.
The Cowboys and other organizations that donated their time to the sheriff’s department were highlighted such as the different volunteer patrol units, explores, cadets and search and rescue teams to name a few.
Sheriff tom Bosanko says it is thanks to all of these volunteers that the sheriff’s office is able to do their jobs.
He said today “they do that out of the kindness of their hearts and their expense so that others may live and so we really appreciate the work of all of our volunteers throughout the county.”
Nothing else illustrates those honored today’s event better than the theme that they all were superheroes in the minds of the sheriff’s office.
