It’s April, which means it’s that time of year when we like to give our volunteers a little extra love in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month!
Needless to say, volunteers are essential to the work we do at Foodlink. From sorting donated food in our distribution center, to assisting with programs that address the root causes of hunger, volunteers serve many impactful roles in our organization.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll use the space on this blog to share interesting statistics and introduce you to a few of our loyal volunteers who donate their time in support our mission! For example, did you know that 24 volunteers each donated more than 100 hours of their time to Foodlink last year! We gave them a special shoutout in the graphic above! They have been essential contributors to our COVID-19 response, and we’re grateful to have them on our team!
Check out the video below that our staff created to show its gratitude for ALL of the time our volunteers gave us during a challenging year.
