Volunteers. They truly make our world go round here at FBR. If we didn’t have volunteers walking through our doors Monday through Friday, all year long, we would not be able to do what we do. Did you know that over 7,000 volunteers clocked 102,355 hours last year here at FBR? That’s the equivalent of 50 full time staff members. Take a second to digest that. It certainly humbles us. April 16-20, 2012 marks National Volunteer Week – a week we look forward to each and every year.
In recognition of National Volunteer Week, we’re going to highlight a volunteer/group each day. These are awesome examples of the types of folks who dedicate their time to fighting hunger. The list of individuals and groups who grace us with their presence is unbelievable. THANK YOU to all of our volunteers. Whether you’ve come once or you give of your time weekly, we appreciate you and all you do. Happy Volunteer Week!
Meet Bob. His smiling face can be found in our distribution area every Monday and on Saturdays we’re open. His passion for fighting hunger is contagious, as is his positive spirit. So many individuals like Bob retire and search for outlets in which they can give back and occupy their time. We’re fortunate enough to be one outlet where so many retired folks spend their time. They’re a crucial part of our food bank family in every sense of the word!
