Discover What Our Volunteers Have to Say

“I always knew that I loved helping people, but I was not sure how I could make an impact. I am happily continuing to volunteer at Memphis Tilth, UBFM, Fig Tree Food Pantry, and St. Jude. It is more about the journey than the destination. I have never been so excited to wake up at 6 am on a Saturday morning to go hand out burritos. Never have fire ant bites hurt so little as when I am planting sustainable food in a community garden. I have finally realized my path to happiness is through the happiness of others.”

“I am so fortunate to have gotten to participate in Volunteer Odyssey so quickly after moving to Memphis. It was such a great introduction to all the good work being done in this community and to the many people who make it all happen.”

“Volunteer opportunities like this help us to instill our values of helping others and of being of service in the community along with introducing our kids to the realities of life that many people in our community face each day…
Daddy, I wasn’t volunteering. I was just having a lot of fun!”
