Volunteers at ICM are truly the foundation of the organization! Several hundred volunteers spend time at ICM, providing the following services:
At our “front counter” where clients apply for help
Interviewing clients one-on-one to determine their specific needs
Working the “client boutique” where clients choose clothing for the family
Working in the “pantry” where food boxes are made up
Supervising children in “Love Corner” while parents meet with interviewers
Sorting and hanging clothing in our sorting room
Preparing toiletries for needy families
In 2014, Volunteers gave 23,924 hours to ICM, the equivalent of 9 full-time, average wage employees - this would cost ICM $215,316 per year!
Their generosity allows us keep 94.5% of our $3.5 million budget going to our clients and building expenses.
The jobs mentioned above are performed from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. every weekday. About 125 of our volunteers come in every week on the same day, and some others once a month. Some volunteers come in groups from congregations around the Valley and enjoy a combined social and service time together.
