Scheels, Graduate Sponsor Matt Talbot’s Volunteer Appreciation Lunch
For 25 years and counting, hundreds of compassionate volunteers have come to Matt Talbot’s (mtko.org) community kitchen to provide, prepare and serve hot nutritious meals to the working poor and homeless. These volunteers, some who have been around for all 25 years, are tireless in their efforts to provide nourishment for the body and spirit. Today, volunteers remain the heart and soul of Matt Talbot with over 900 volunteers helping each month with hunger relief and outreach activities. In 2017 volunteers provided 33,794 hours of service and $224,442 worth of in-kind food donations.
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month and to celebrate Matt Talbot is hosting a special volunteer appreciation luncheon on Thursday, April 19. The keynote speaker will be Randy Hawthorne, executive director and publisher for the Nonprofit Hub and executive director of VolunteerLinc. Special thanks to the Graduate Hotel and Scheels for sponsoring the event. Learn more at mtko.org.
