Once every other month, we need volunteers to unload bags of food and sort them so they can be quickly delivered to those in our community who are hungry.
According to Clare B., one of our amazing teen volunteers, A Simple Gesture – Greensboro helped match her with the perfect volunteer opportunity. Clare has been volunteering in the office and ranks working with Leslie, A Simple Gesture’s executive director, as one of her favorite parts. Clare also makes calls to local churches to ask them to support A Simple Gesture – Greensboro. Clare says, “Before volunteering, I really didn’t like talking to people on the phone. Calling the churches definitely got me out of my comfort zone and now I feel very comfortable doing it.”
