VOLUNTEERS – THE LIFEBLOOD OF ACS COMMUNITY L.I.F.T.
To say that ACS runs “lean and mean” is an understatement! We have five paid members of our team. The rest are volunteers. And, we KNOW that we would not be able to do anything we do without them. They truly make our world go ‘round! From meeting our clients as they come in the door, to acting as their personal shoppers in the food bank, each and every one of our clients comes in contact with perhaps a half dozen volunteers each time they visit us. We KNOW we have the best volunteers in the land. Because when our clients leave – whether from one of our medical clinics, thrift store, food bank, job readiness program, or one of our many other programs – they feel that they have been listened to and understood. We help provide them with HOPE and the knowledge that they matter. The gift of self-worth may be the most important thing they receive at ACS.
WHO ARE OUR VOLUNTEERS?
Well, " they" could be YOU! If "they" are not you, we hope "they" will be in the future. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over. Our volunteers come with many diverse religious, ethnic, and professional backgrounds, working together as a team with the common goal of serving their fellow man. “Volunteering gives you the opportunity to exercise yourself as God’s hands.” Janelle Wolfe
