We couldn’t do it without you!
We’re so lucky to have wonderful volunteers who joined us this summer: students, corporate groups, and others who chose to give their time in service to our community. We thank the many volunteers who have made a difference, with special thanks to groups from JP Morgan and USI for their service!
All About Pandas
A group of volunteers from JP Morgan joined students in our summer program for an afternoon of activities all about giant pandas. Together, children and volunteers learned panda facts, made their own paper pandas and even found a name for the new class mascot–“Pamboo.”
Employees from Emerson Reid/USI volunteered in our food pantry and thrift store in a company-wide service campaign. They helped with our weekly pantry distribution, assisting visitors to the pantry in selecting foods for their families. And they helped sort donations of clothing, preparing them for the Sharing Place thrift store, sales from which help support our other programs.
“I had a wonderful time helping in the food pantry! I loved interacting with clients and even using a little bit of Spanish that I leanred in high school. I am glad to have helped them smile and receive any resources they needed.” —Danielle C.
