Karen Caston, Jim Dieterich, Susan Portillos, Rachel Ryckman and husband Alex lent a hand in the marketplace instead of the usual warehouse shift during the June volunteering night. They really enjoyed getting a more personal view of how much Metro Caring helps those in need, as the marketplace shift lets volunteers interact one on one with Metro Caring’s clients.
“As always, volunteering at Metro Caring last week was a very fulfilling and positive experience. This evening was even more so as we all got to work in the marketplace and interact with the participants. With the holiday weekend approaching, it meant a lot to me to be a part of helping those in need of assistance obtain healthy, fresh food to provide for their families in celebrating Independence Day.” -Karen Caston
“It was fun.” -Jim Dieterich, Winner of the “Most Thorough Personal Shopper” Award
Rachel Ryckman as well as White and Steele’s Diversity Committee would like to give a special shout out to Susan Portillos. For the last 18 months Susan has attended almost every volunteering night as well as coordinating and encouraging our volunteers. Thank you Susan!
