The fruits of all we have been able to accomplish over my time volunteering at Grauer is all the recognition I really need. Volunteerism is at the very heart of Grauer and I wear this badge proudly. It is simply the way I believe we should do things --- not for the awards, but for the pleasure we derive as human beings for helping others and advancing society.”
