Spotlight on Service

A “priceless” experience


ANN from our SEARCH (Seek Elderly Alone, Renew Courage & Hope) program says, “When volunteering, it feels like I’m making a difference in a person’s life and bringing joy to a person’s day.” 

JENNA from our Refugee & Immigration Services program is an intern for a semester. She says she enjoys “working with clients, getting hands-on experience within the field that she is pursuing, and working with such a kind and diverse group of staff” is her favorite part of volunteering.

BARBARA, Board or Advisory Committee volunteer, says the most enjoyable part of volunteering is “Service to the Poor.” 

KITTY, Communications and Marketing volunteer, says that she would recommend volunteer opportunities at Catholic Charities Maine to others and that there are “so many different ways to help all kinds of people all across the state.” 

MARI, Central Services Administration Project Team volunteer, says that “working with people who love what they do,“ is one of the most enjoyable parts of the volunteer experience.

KRISTEN, Parish Social Ministry's Emergency Relief and Hope phone line volunteer, says that she "answers phone calls to assist folks with resources for their financial shortfalls," and she is thankful “for people’s appreciation of my willingness to attempt to help them.”
