The "right fit" volunteer opportunity for Debra turned out to fit her family too!
Debra's story is fuel in the tank for Charity Connect. When we first met, she was looking for a meaningful, long-term volunteer opportunity. Enthusiasm and inspiration enveloped our conversation as we talked about the causes that were important to her. We came up with three cause areas and correlating opportunities and then decided to begin with her desire to fight hunger. We facilitated Debra's first volunteer experience at Nourish Now convenient to her in Rockville. 7 months later, Debra has been helping Nourish Now with their food recovery and assistance regularly for 8 hours a week. Her children, along with some of their friends, also volunteer in the warehouse at Nourish Now and as a family, each week they rescue food as part of Panera's Day End Dough-nation program. The mission of Charity Connect is to help people like Debra find the volunteer opportunity that fits into their life and fulfills them.
