The Value of Volunteers

It's no secret that the staff of The Stewpot is unable to accomplish everything we do on our own. Our volunteers play a vital role in all of our programs. Did you know we have 42 volunteers each day just for meal services?

On top of that volunteers help us:
  • sign people up for services
  • hand out toiletries
  • sort mail
  • teach computer classes
  • manage budgets for Representative Payee clients
  • teach art
  • sort donations
  • give eye exams
  • teach Bible study
  • tutor students
  • teach ESL and so much more!
We really couldn't do it without you all! According to the estimated dollar value for volunteer time is $21.36/hour. According to that number, the estimated value of our meal service volunteers only for one month is over $54,000!

Thank you for helping us serve second chances each day here at The Stewpot!
