I have been for volunteering for almost 4 years. Initially, I began volunteering in the appointment closet with a fellow volunteer and friend, and more recently switched to working in the warehouse in the donation organization and distribution for the appointment closet.
When I began in the early days, I wanted to do something that would mean something to me in a way I felt that I could give back to my community. What I didn't expect is how deeply my work affected so many different communities and how much my heart would fill with joy doing such work. I have also been able to buff up on a bit of Spanish along the way.
EHP does a wonderful job of servicing so many people be it with food, clothing, kitchen items, bedding, furniture and even wedding dresses! It’s all due to the wonderfully generous donors in our community offering their time and talents, and their donated items for distribution.
I look very forward to the upcoming improvements to the warehouse and appointment closet to make our work run more efficiently and smoothly. We have outgrown our current space and desperately need our new building that is soon to break ground.
The full-time staff works harder than I have seen anywhere else I have worked. We all just cannot work fast enough to keep up with the demand. I am happy that we can do the little we can to make a difference in so many lives, which include our own.
