Volunteer Spotlight: Alice

United Against Poverty’s volunteers are the backbone of our operation, We call on them when we need support and they always deliver. Our volunteers help with administrative work, stocking shelves, helping our members find the resources they need, teaching classes, working events, and various other tasks around campus. There are many dedicated volunteers here at UP and we would not be able to do the great work we do without them.

We are especially thankful for Alice, who has been a volunteer for UP for many years. Alice is essential to the Development Department and is conserved an essential part of our team. She always has a smile and a good story to tell. We are grateful for our wonderful volunteers and the support they provide to accomplish our mission. If you are interested in become a volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Alisa Artigas, at 772-564-9365 ext. 208.
