Volunteers, the roots of Aunt Leah’s strength and purpose

“Aunt Leah’s is different from many other social service agencies because they are not satisfied with providing only their participants’ bare basic day-to-day survival needs. Instead, they take a much longer-term approach, with a very wide range of programs and services tailored to each person’s individual needs and goals. The end goal is to provide the participants with all the tools and resources needed to progress into happy, successful, self-sufficiency.

I first learned about Aunt Leah’s more than 10 years ago, when I started volunteering at one of the fundraising Christmas tree lots. I have returned to the same lot, year after year, where I see a lot of familiar faces. Recently, I started helping Fulton Tom and other volunteers with the Wednesday food program. I can’t think of many better uses for my time and money than helping Aunt Leah’s. And besides —- it’s fun!”
