The role of volunteers within the foodbank
One of our most valuable assets is the wonderful group of volunteers who are generous enough to support us with their time.
We currently have approximately 30 regular volunteers.
The regular volunteers help with all manner of day to day tasks including warehousing, manning the store, client contact, sorting and organising food, making up food parcels and any general tasks assigned to them. The financial worth of volunteering should not be underestimated either. If we had to pay for the support our volunteers provide we would be a much reduced service. We would like to express our gratitude to each and every volunteer who gifts us their time.
Without our Centre Coodinators we would have a far more difficult time, so our particular thanks go to Betty at Bridgeton St Frances in the East, Lynda at Blairtummock Community Hall, Flora at St Enoch’s, Alex at Shettleston Foodbank and Catherine at Calton Parkhead Parish Church.
