Just in case you’re not convinced as to the value and importance of our hunger service volunteers, take a peak at these numbers:
We rely upon 81 active hunger volunteers (i.e. individuals that come at regularly-scheduled times--this does not include the groups of varying sizes that come in each and every night to serve dinner at the Men's Emergency Shelter.)
In an average week, our volunteers contribute between 60 and 70 hours of their time to our hunger programs in the soup kitchen, food pantry, meals on wheels and men’s emergency shelter.
If you add in the miscellaneous groups that come each week and total it all up you get nearly 400 volunteer hours EACH WEEK! 400!
I hope you believe me when I say that our hunger programs would be quite literally unable to function without the gift of time given by our dedicated volunteers.
