So we're happy to celebrate National Volunteer Week, which has been a tradition since 1974. It's about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging the millions of Americans who give their time and talents to help others.
There are plenty of good reasons to volunteer. It feels great giving back. It allows you to make new friends and gain new perspectives. You'll help people who need your time, your effort and your willingness to listen and understand. And if you're thinking of a career change, it's a great way to expand your network, gain new skills and show prospective employers you're committed to your community.
Foodshare is always looking for volunteers to help us accomplish our goals. Whether it's sorting food in our Bloomfield distribution center, serving as a member of a Hunger Action Team or becoming an e-advocate, there are so many ways you can help us eliminate hunger and food insecurity, one meal at a time.
