That’s how many hours our volunteers logged in the last fiscal year, which ended in October. That equals 1,315 days of volunteering, which is the equivalent of having 15 additional full-time staff members.
Our volunteer shoppers logged 18,240 hours, while our volunteer order takers served 7,775 hours during the year. Additional volunteers, including our office assistants, coupon program volunteers, board and committee members, and sewing volunteers, served 5,553 hours. In monetary terms, these hours total over $650,000.
We couldn’t have served over 1,300 clients this fiscal year without our amazing volunteers!
