Lori Beesley, Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement
I thought a lot about the volunteers in the following days. I knew they wanted to feel connected to the clients they serve. Many of them had long time relationships with clients and had developed friendships. Some reached out, asking what was happening with various programs and expressed great concern over how people were doing. Some asked if Meals on Wheels was still being delivered and offered to help. Others asked about the community that uses the Food Bank and offered assistance to keep it running. In other words, the SCHC volunteers told me they were feeling disconnected and very concerned.
