Volunteer Appreciation Month!!
It is an understatement to say that we love our volunteers! Every single day there is someone who is giving his or her time and energy to proel the mission of Sharing House. We simply could not exist without the hearts and hands of over 175 volunteers. It takes 130 Volunteers every week to run the daily operations.
Many volunteers come to the Sharing House, having heard about the ministry through their local faith congregation. Others come because a friend speaks of the reward they feel when joining in the work of community.
Volunteers spend time packing food orders, sorting clothes, displaying the produce, fixing the leaky roof. Volunteers listen deeply to neighbor’s stories, teach canning classes, create fundraising plans, shop for school clothes and share in co-mentoring groups with folks trying to “get ahead”. Volunteers pray for our community, organize food drives, create financial budgets and publish articles for the newspaper. Volunteers empty the clothing drop-box, make trips to Food Lion, and give hope by sharing a smile when times are tough. Volunteers are a force of love for neighbors in need!
