Happy National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

Roberti Community House celebrates YOU, our volunteers, during National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and every day!
For 10 years Roberti Community House has relied on many generous volunteers to connect with the community and make our programs successful.

Here are just some of the many ways YOU, RCH volunteers, are impacting the community:

  • packing lunch bags
  • sorting rescued food into family meal boxes
  • preparing meals in RCP
  • picking up and delivering groceries and family meal bags
  • sorting rescued produce
  • distributing emergency food resources
  • assisting with remote learning and online tutoring
  • tending and harvesting our gardens
  • snow removal and tent raising
  • rescuing produce pickup
  • maintenance of RCH and RCP buildings
Only with our dedicated volunteers can Roberti Community continue encouraging the best in ourselves, our neighbors, and our community.

Why volunteers love sharing their time at RCH:
“wow!!! I think what I loved the most was seeing the happy faces of people, the blessings they gave us and we even cried with some people because they said it was the only food they had for the day”  -Maria
“…I am so grateful to have received this opportunity to meet and help out other families. The positivity of this volunteer community was simply infectious and I am so thankful I was able to spend time with them. It was wonderful to see so many members of the community coming together to help each other out.”  - Elizabeth
“…it is so gratifying to bless people with essential need of food.”  - Mickey
“I really enjoy talking with the staff and interacting with the community members as they come and retrieve food. It's such an important service right now, particularly during this Covid pandemic - I wish I had more hours to spend at the house!”  -Lauren
