HOL Volunteers: Making it Happen
Vicki Cane, volunteer coordinator
The generosity and hard work of our volunteers empowers House of Lazarus to offer programs that are making a real difference in our community. On a daily basis an army of 47 volunteers assist in sorting household goods and clothing donations, evaluating, cleaning, bundling and pricing donations, assisting costumers, displaying and stocking items. All of this hard work keeps our stores, Mountain Treasures and The HOL Boutique, running smoothly.
In our Food Bank garden our plant savvy volunteers prep soil, plant, weed and harvest to help us in offering fresh vegetables to our clients. At our weekly community meal, Dinner on the House, a team of volunteers assist in serving dinner, creating a welcoming environment, and cleaning for an average of 75 people.
In the Linking Hands Programs more than 100 volunteers participate in valuable offerings such as Lunch and Learn, the Green Food Bag program and more. These hard working volunteers are out in the community each month serving, packing and bringing to life
programs to enrich the lives of the people in our community.
We recognize that our successes are in large part due to the continued and valiant efforts of our 175 volunteers.
