I’m reluctant to admit that I’ve volunteered at the GBF for less than four years. Why did it take me so long to “get on board”? I just didn’t know how flexible the work schedule is, or how rewarding it would be. I sort clothes, and every bag holds a mystery! We get a lot of lovely things (and some not so nice). I’m always shopping for myself, my family, and friends. Where else can you get such great bargains!

I’ve made a lot of friends here. It’s easy to like volunteers because they want to be here. I love how the staff show their appreciation for my efforts with frequent “Thank you’s”.  I’m making up for my late start at the GBF by logging lots of hours per week. I feel like I’m accomplishing something every day that I work here, and I enjoy every minute. I’m proud to be a part of this amazing success story.
