Learn About Our Volunteers: Al

Mediaon March 30th, 2017Comments Off on Learn About Our Volunteers: Al

Al was born and raised in Cincinnati, and has been a customer and volunteer with the Freestore for years.  He started off volunteering several years ago as a requirement for his SNAP benefits, but once he aged out of the requirement, he continued to volunteer anyways. When asked why he chooses to come down to the Food Room (almost daily) when he could be anywhere else, he said, “It is for the people. I love the staff and the customers—many I know from the neighborhood.”  Al is such a pleasure to have around, and he is a huge help to us. He takes initiative and knows how and when to step in where needed. He is a part of the Freestore Foodbank family.
