We Love our Volunteers!
What Does it Mean to Volunteer at FROM?
FROM relies on volunteers in all parts of our organization. We have volunteers that answer the phone, help in our programs and run Treasures Thrift Shop. We love our volunteers and couldn’t help as many of our neighbors in need without them.
In fact, FROM was founded by volunteers and the organization didn’t have any paid staff for the first 10 years. Even though we have grown and expanded to better serve our community, we still rely on volunteers.
We are blessed to have over 300 volunteers donate their time at FROM each year, but we always have open volunteer positions.
