Please note that face coverings are required at all times. Now more than ever, we are deeply grateful for your support.

Volunteer Spotlight: CareerSource

The Volunteer Department would like to highlight our outstanding partnership with CareerSource Florida!

Since the beginning of April, CareerSource has provided a total of 24 interns to receive on-the-job training across every department in our organization. Our Trade and Logistics Interns work alongside our Grocery staff, learning about distribution, merchandising, and warehouse management. Administrative Interns learn data-management, client intake procedures, and volunteer management by working at the Welcome Desk, Life Enrichment Center, and Volunteer Office.

Altogether, our interns have received more than 6,000 hours of on-the-job training! We are honored to foster educational opportunities and real-world experiences for these interns. While the intern program is usually offered to young adults in the community, CareerSource extended their services to provide vital financial assistance to employees furloughed due to COVID-19.

Thank you CareerSource and all of our talented interns!
