An inside look: Volunteering at No More Empty Pots

Last week I spent an afternoon volunteering at No More Empty Pots for the first time. My review? This is a 10 out of 10, must try opportunity!

The mission of No More Empty Pots is to connect individuals and groups to improve self-sufficiency, regional food security and economic resilience of urban and rural communities through advocacy and action. They support communities in becoming self-sufficient and food secure through a systems approach to solutions.

The metro proves volunteerism can thrive: Do Good Days 2023

Last week's effort to engage volunteers during Do Good Days was a big success!

During National Volunteer Week and SHARE Omaha and SHARE Iowa highlighted the critical need for volunteers in the metro area. Over 1,700 individuals signed up to volunteer during Do Good Days and beyond! See photos and videos from Do Good Days 2023, here. 

Volunteer Dave and the Stephen Center

Do Good Days is coming quickly: April 19-22, 2023!  The need is great for volunteers and this year SHARE Omaha is encouraging the community to step in and fill the hundreds of volunteer positions where volunteers did not return after COVID. 

Dave, a long-time volunteer at the Stephen Center also is a recruiter for volunteers. One recruit, Charlie came with Dave and has been returning consistently ever since.
