Many residents at Glenwood Sober House volunteer at the weekly Preble Street food pantry, working as a team to move thousands of pounds of donated food into the dining room and help feed over 100 families each week.
“We really couldn’t do pantry without them,” say Preble Street staff. “Part of their recovery journey is giving back to the community, and we’re grateful they choose to spend so much time here.”
One such hardworking, dedicated Glenwood volunteer is Volunteer of the Month Brett, who frequently arrives early, leaves late, and brings friends for several soup kitchen shifts throughout the week in addition to Thursday pantry.
“Brett always has an amazing attitude. He does the work of two or three volunteers, and makes the whole shift so easy for us,” say staff.
Brett recently brought his parents to volunteer and as staff sang his praises his parents teared up, saying, “This place is pretty important to him — and we’re so grateful to have our son back.”
Thank you Brett and Glenwood Sober House for going above and beyond!
