What our volunteers are saying:

I love this organization. It satisfies needs on many different levels – volunteerism, education and community service. Sena Drawer

Learning while contributing , is how I would characterize the “difference” at this charity.  Giving back, making a difference in the lives of those in need, teaching teens about volunteerism and cooking, while everyone learns critical life skills–this is the heart of this charity I have come to love. Penny Frunzar

I have loved volunteering for FVFFH. The volunteers, staff and of course the clients we serve have added so much to my life. I feel so lucky to work with such compassionate people. Marge Brown
