“I have always been the type of person that hates to ask for help. With the struggles I have had trying to find a job, I had to lower my pride and walk into the door at The River. The volunteers and helpers were so kind to me and explained what I needed to do. I ended up with more groceries than I ever imagined I would receive. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting food back on my table!”

Why volunteer?

Wondering if you should volunteer at The River?  Here's why this couple gives their time to The River:

We’ve supported various charities as long as we’ve been adults but always with donations of money or belongings.  We came to the River because some things were missing from our lives – the giving of our time to help others and a feeling of belonging to something bigger.  We found that at the River, along with great friends and good times.  Working at the River makes us better people.  The Disney offer got us in the door but we knew after that first time sorting clothes and bagging potatoes that we needed the River as much as the River needed us, maybe more so.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
- Matthew 25:35-36
