Volunteer Love Top 10



People who volunteer for us are amazing! They give up their time to put their energies into helping us achieve our mission to end homelessness in Wake County. Just how much do we love our volunteers? Here are ten reasons PLMFT Volunteers are great!

From helping with children’s summer activities to answering the phones and stuffing envelopes, we can depend on you!
