Thank you to Cathy Endicott, Dmitry Vilner, Karen Caston, Susan Portillos, John Craver and Dave Nowak for their volunteering time in June! It was a very busy night and the recent post office pick up event made for a lot of extra canned goods going out into the market place and the need for a ton of sorting. Dave, Dmitry and Karen were sorting in the warehouse. Dave was diligent about checking ingredients on each product to ensure each was healthy as Metro Caring does not distribute items with too much sugar. John did a lot of stocking of pantry shelves and filling the shelves in the refrigerator. Cathy and Susan worked in the marketplace as customer service and keeping shelves neat. People were loading their carts like crazy!
We would love to see you at a White and Steele Metro Caring night - the last Tuesday of each month!
Thank you to Jim Meseck (and Ruth), Savvi Neufer (and Ross), Adam Goldstein (and Kacey) and Karen Caston for their volunteering time in April. Adam and Jim were in the warehouse, Karen and Ruth were in the marketplace, while Savvi, Ross and Kacey helped people get all their groceries out to their cars! All of the White and Steele volunteers who attended had a good amount of experience working at Metro Caring. Thank you to our volunteers for doing your part for our community!
White and Steele has a group working at Metro Caring each month on the last Tuesday, so come join us and see what Metro Caring is all about!
Thank you to our volunteers this month, Karen Caston, Savvi Neufer (with Ross), and Adam Goldstein's daughter Kacey! The shortest month of the year did not mean Metro Caring was any less busy, and our volunteers were put to work for the thankful shoppers.
Are you interested in helping out Metro Caring and just have not had the time to give them a shot? Tuesday nights are a great time to test the waters and see if you are interested in volunteering! There is always a lot to do and many friendly people who will help you get pointed in the right direction. Tuesday nights are distribution night for Metro Caring, where all the food that has been collected is distributed to those in need. Clients are treated to a grocery store type of feel which makes them feel more comfortable with what could be an awkward experience. Come give Metro Caring a try!
