“Volunteering with the ESL Program is incredibly rewarding to me—and doesn’t require any prep work! All I do is show up and talk. The students work very hard and sincerely appreciate the assistance I provide. I’m thankful for the opportunity to give back to my community on a consistent basis.”

Supper Club Volunteer

“I coordinate a team of volunteers from Gateway Church to serve dinner and play bingo with the residents of Crossroads Apartments. Initially I wanted this to be an opportunity for my husband and I to do something meaningful together, but it has grown into something much more than that. I have made friends with the residents, and the joy and smiles on the faces of the children light up my heart!”

“I have always been a volunteer, Boy Scouts, sports teams, whatever. When I retired, I wanted to work with an organization that helped families. Little did I realize how much I could do by preparing taxes for our clients. They are so grateful for our help and that big smile I get when we are finished is a huge reward!”

Financial Coach Volunteer

“Volunteering as a coach brings me so much joy! The organized and supportive staff provide the opportunity to serve the community through my passion, even with a busy schedule. The clients are inspiring and appreciative which always delivers instant gratification; and as a bonus I always learn new things, develop skills (Lots of active listening!) and the content keeps me focused on my own goals. It’s a triple win for the community, our clients and myself.”
