Last year, volunteers provided more than 34,000 hours of service in our store and for our programs. Without their help, we wouldn't be able to meet the needs of economically marginalized people in our community. We're grateful for all of their work--and for the bakeries that provide treats for them.
Atlanta Bread Company, Simple Simon Bakery, and Manderfield's all provide bread, bagels, and pastries for the people who make our programs happen. Thanks also to volunteers Helen and Pat Hart, and Gloria and Tom Hunt who pick up these items.
Kneading bread takes a lot of muscle, which makes it the perfect metaphor for the effort our volunteers put into meeting community needs.
Interested in joining our volunteer team? We're especially in need of help on weekdays from noon or 1 until 4 p.m. in clothing and sorting. Contact Erica if you'd like to find out more details.
