This week is National Volunteer Week. Established in 1974, this week is about bettering ourselves and our communities through volunteerism. It’s also a time to celebrate the many volunteers that make a difference in our communities, our schools, and our city.

This week we would like to thank all of our volunteers. As a 100% volunteer organization, each and every one of us are volunteers- from our core staff to our office and delivery volunteers. We appreciate all the time and effort you give us to make our organization run smoothly.

  • Here are just a few ways our incredible BPB volunteers are making an impact:
  • Raising funds
  • Raising awareness
  • Making weekly deliveries to schools
  • Assembling food and comfort backpacks
  • Sorting through clothing donations
  • Analyzing recipient surveys
  • Arranging neighborhood drives
  • Managing our food pantry
  • And much more!

We are so grateful for the wonderful volunteers we have; we couldn’t do it without you!
