We started volunteering at Heart to Heart approximately a year ago. We’ve always been passionate about helping people with food insecurity, but it was difficult to find somewhere where our entire family could volunteer.
Heart to Heart’s Shop & Stock program was the perfect match for our family. Our two children, Alyssa and Riley, loved being able to “grocery shop” on their own, and we enjoyed working with a mixture of new people and core volunteers. We also enjoyed the flexibility of picking our volunteer shifts so it didn’t impact other family obligations.
In a few weeks, we’re moving to Florida, so unfortunately, we won’t be able to continue volunteering at Heart to Heart, but we encourage anyone who wants to help those in need to volunteer at Stock & Shop!
