April was Kohl’s Spring into Action volunteering month. During this month, Kohl’s employees can sign up to volunteer at various non-profits, and Kohls will donate $50 for every hour of volunteering their employees complete. Their volunteers are always great, so we were happy to participate in the program again this year!
Over the month, 20 Kohl’s employees volunteered for various shifts at the pantry, and their total hours amounted to a $3,000+ donation!
Their efforts culminated on Friday the 28th when the large group pictured here came in, and all volunteered together. They were an awesome team and helped us prepare the pantry for the busy weekend ahead, Saturday at Interchange on Juneau Ave Downtown, and Sunday at our satellite pantry at St Mark’s AME on 15th and Atkinson.
We are so grateful for the generosity of Kohl’s and their employees! If you would like to help out the pantry, please DM us or email InterchangeOffice@gmail.com. We are currently looking for people to help us host a food drive at your school, work, place of worship, etc. And as always, we’re looking for new volunteers, groups, or individuals!
Peace & Happiness,
