An "Army of Volunteers" is what it takes to run the front desk at Eblen.
These retired school teachers, DSS workers, nurses, bankers, business owners, school principals, telephone company employees, attorneys and even law enforcement officers come in on a weekly basis to be the first faces of Eblen. They answer questions, answer the phones, make coffee, make copies and try to explain the many facets of the programs of Eblen Charities all on a volunteer basis.
There are more than 20 people volunteering their time. This is the one position without whom, the staff would not be able to assist the number of clients that we do. It is probably the most difficult position in the office and these valuable people handle it with kindness, compassion and understanding for the difficult situations our clients are facing.
To say these volunteers are valuable is an understatement. The cost to have paid employees at the front desk would be more than $65,000 but to ALL of us at Eblen Charities they are worth 100 times that!
Thank you all for your friendship, commitment, dedication, compassion and caring! You are all a huge part of Eblen and we would not be who we are without you!
