Developing Young and Old

One of the focuses in BB is developing leadership skills in our young volunteers and giving them opportunities to take the reigns and lead. Here Cole, one of our original Burrito Boyz, leads the wrap-up discussion, with the youth volunteers after our second stop. This is a time with kids can share their experiences, share who they have met, and reflect on their impressions of the morning. These are warm heartfelt talks filled with smiles and inspiration.

Lee Gormley, our oldest volunteer to date at age 93, returned this spring for a second visit to volunteer for the Burrito Boyz. She was joined by her daughter who traveled from Connecticut and her grandsome visiting from San Francisco.

Mothers Day

Mother’s Day was celebrated at Hunger2Help when two mothers of core volunteers chose to spend their early Sunday morning, rolling burritos for the Burrito Boyz. Lee and Lisa, pictured here with our kitchen coordinator and head egg scrambler, Rafeal, quickly learned how to scoop up eggs and potatoes, and roll burritos. Lee, 92 years young, is our oldest volunteer to date. Lisa has since become a regular volunteer and has  taken the initiative to add sunscreen to our list of items handed out on Sundays.
