Volunteer

The Ada Jenkins Center utilizes over 750 unduplicated volunteers a year. These volunteers provide more than 30,000 hours of service to smoothly and effectively run our programs on behalf of the clients we serve. This support equates to approximately $640,000 in donated services!

The majority of our volunteers commit to a regular schedule of volunteering within a particular program. This year alone volunteers have helped The Ada Jenkins Center feed more than 14,000 individuals through our Loaves & Fishes food pantry, serve over 1,300 patients in our Free Clinic of Our Towns and provide dental service to more than 1,600 clients via our Community Dental clinic. Overall in FY 2011-2012 The Ada Jenkins Center served more than 19,000 clients.

    The Blue Man Group, Maintenance Geeks, or Jacks-of-All-Trades - whatever you want to call these three volunteers combined, please include the term "fantastic." Mario Bibiloni, Joe Scarpino, and Nick Jurisko all met for the first time at an AJC volunteer orientation back in Jan 2014 - Mario as facilitator, Joe and Nick as participants.

    Since then, these three volunteers have become a cohesive team, serving The Center's maintenance needs as never before. They have completed well over 110 logged maintenance requests from staff, varying from hanging bulletin boards and shelving to keeping the main building restrooms functional.

    The service they provide The Center is invaluable and desperately needed! People are surprised to learn these three are not lifelong friends, even though they are all Northerners and have December birthdays.

    Joe, Nick and Mario - The Ada Jenkins Center staff and other volunteers cannot thank you enough for your gift of maintenance to The Center!!!
