The North Kingstown Food Pantry Thanks Its Volunteers at 2nd Annual Volunteer Appreciation Day

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The North Kingstown Food Pantry celebrated their 2nd Annual Volunteer Appreciation Day with a cook-out at the Little Red School House. About 50 volunteers and their families showed up to enjoy hamburgers and hotdogs provided by the Pantry Board of Directors. The Food Pantry is operated entirely by unpaid volunteers and one part-time staff coordinator. Volunteers log hundreds of hours each month with client service, sorting food, stocking shelfs, clerical work, grant writing, fund raising and maintenance. While many of the volunteers sign up as individuals, some are husband and wife teams or mom and kids teams. Some of the volunteers join as part of civic or church groups.

This year the North Kingstown Food Pantry Board of Directors recognized Shirley St. Sauveur as the Pantry’s Volunteer of the Year.
