Volunteers are the heart of the Center! The continuing success of the Center depends on the impressive and dedicated efforts of scores of volunteers who generously give their time, support and enthusiasm. Our volunteer base of over 200 individuals collectively contributes hundreds of hours each month, and comes from many neighborhoods that are outside the Center's service area. Volunteers of the Center contribute their time and a great deal of expertise. Many of them have worked in fields such as social security, nursing, social services and education, providing a wealth of knowledge and insight that is beneficial in all they do for the Center. They drive our vans to pick-up, store and distribute food; interview clients and maintain records; prepare and deliver food for our Saturday Meal Delivery program to the homebound; assist with fundraisers; work in our pantry and clothing rooms; and help keep our organization running smoothly as we continue serving the needs of the poor, the homeless and the elderly.
