Way More Than Vanilla Extract

A food pantry volunteer finds the perfect item for a client, creating a ripple of smiles throughout the campus.

Her story about the vanilla extract still held in her hand while shopping in our clothing center was bringing smiles to the faces of those around her. Along with talk of polka dots and picking out the perfect shoes, she was sure to tell us about the kind gentleman who kept searching the shelves and found just the right item for her in the food pantry this evening and then made sure it ended up in her hands before she left the campus.

We tracked down the volunteer who was responsible for the small extra act of service and asked him what he thought about volunteering at Catholic Charities.

He said, “It’s a wonderful thing to do. You think you’re taking time out of your life, but how much more do YOU receive when you do something like this.”

Thank you to Luke and all of our volunteers for welcoming and serving each person who comes to us for assistance in big AND small ways.

It’s way more than vanilla extract…It’s Love Changing Lives!
