So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye! I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye . . .
Sadly, it’s that time of year again when FISH must bid adieu to their seasonal volunteers.
“We cannot thank you enough for sharing your time with us while you were here and hope you know the positive impact you made on the lives of so many of our island neighbors. We could not, and cannot, complete the significant work we do without your energy, enthusiasm and compassion, stated Lyn Kern, FISH Office and Volunteer Manager. “ Our volunteers are the lifeblood of F.I.S.H., and without YOU, we could not operate at the level that we do. During the summer, we continue to provide our services with a skeleton crew of available volunteers, and it ‘ain’t easy’ (yet we do it!). We already can’t wait for your return.”
As volunteers and others get ready to ‘go back north’, please consider dropping off unopened, unexpired, non-perishable food items to the FISH Food Pantry. Drop off hours are Mon. – Fri., from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. FISH also has a bin located outside their office, located at 2430-B Periwinkle Way, for non-business hour drop off. Perishable items, such as milk, yogurt, butter, meats, etc. may be dropped of only during business hours. All items must be unexpired and unopened.
For additional information and for information on volunteer opportunities, please contact the FISH Walk-In Center at 239-472-4775.
