Unity Shoppe has honored their volunteers in many ways this summer.
A special luncheon was held at the historical residence “La Casa Nichita” that faithful senior volunteers attended along with 5 French summer interns, and a dozen other regulars that assist the staff in serving over 18,000 clients year-round.
Eight Rein Teen Volunteers were treated to lunch and lively conversation with Unity staff in the loft at 1219 State Street. They come from New Jersey, Florida, and New York and will spend the month of July learning how the Unity Shoppe serves hard-working low-income families and seniors with dignity and respect during times of crisis.
16-year old Sofia said, “Letting people shop and choose what they need for their families makes such a difference. In my town, food programs just give bags of groceries pre-selected, without regard to individual preferences!”
