Last year, more than 34,000 volunteers provided 85,700 hours of valuable service to our community.
Our volunteers sort and pack food donations, prepare BackPacks for hungry children, pack senior and family boxes for emergency food assistance, glean fresh food from local farms, and distribute food at Mobile Pantries. They also assist with administrative support and special events. In total, the value of Second Harvest volunteers’ time and talent is approximately $1.9 million.
We truly could not do the work we do without the help of our volunteers, and during this National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we want to say:
YOU ARE AWESOME!
We are hosting a Volunteer Recognition Celebration for our current volunteers and families this Sunday, April 17, 2016. Details here.
