Dear [Recipients Name],
I feel I have to thank you personally for your help that you have freely given over the past few weeks. The holidays are always a busy time for us, and your support has proved to be invaluable. You have never complained about any tasks asked of you, and you should know that many of us would have been working the night just to stay on top of everything without this help. We have asked a lot from you, and we would like to thank you for all of your hard work. We would hope that you would consider helping us out on a regular basis; I can assure you it is not always like last week. Many thanks once again.

Further things to consider when writing thank you letters to volunteers
Thank You Letters
Thank-you letters are letters written to politely acknowledge a gift, service, compliment or an offer. Simply put, these are letters you write to express your gratitude and appreciation for someone's thoughtful actions. You can send a thank-you letter after personal events, an interview, networking events, after receiving a gift or donation, etc. A thank-you letter is always special in that it lets the recipient know that what he/she did was greatly valued and appreciated. The letter should be sent promptly and when the events are still fresh so that it can be more meaningful.
Thank-you letters should be warm, personal, and sincere. Begin with the two magical words "Thank you," and address the recipient in a way that feels most natural. Be clear about what you are thanking the person for. Let the recipient know why his/her specific gift or actions are cherished and why they are important to you. Inquire after the recipient's well-being and share some information about your life. Let him/her know that you are thinking about him/her and mention the next time you may want to meet. To wrap things up, thank the recipient again and let him/her know that you value his/her friendship.
Letters to Volunteers
Letters to volunteers are letters written to people who freely offer to undertake a task or take part in an enterprise. The recipient of such letters can be any person who wishes to contribute his/her effort, time, or even money for a cause without expecting anything in return. Letters calling for volunteers need to be concise, clear, and to the point. Your letter is unlikely to hold a volunteer's attention if it is six pages long with every detail about the work or event. It is, therefore, advisable to include only the details the recipient needs to decide whether to pitch in or not.
Letters to volunteers should be formal and must follow the normal business letter format. Begin your letter by thanking the recipient for his/her continued support. State the reason you need the recipient's services or contribution and the cause your work will be supporting. If you are running an event, mention what it entails and when it will take place. Describe the kind of commitment you are looking for; whether you just require help for one day or need an ongoing commitment. Provide your contact details and close by thanking the recipient for his/her time.
