I'm in education, in my early 40's and have always volunteered since my late teens. This is by far the most rewarding volunteer experience to date. I've been volunteering for about 4 yrs and 2+ years with one of my daughters; it's a great way to bond with each other as we serve the kids. We LOVE the Read and Feed Program!!!
