I have volunteered at a lot of organizations and I really connect with this one. It is small enough to really get to know the volunteers and the customers. The seniors who come here register and are regulars. It's a great experience and I highly recommend it!

St. Francis Living Room has a lot of nice staff in working there. The experience is a little like working as a waiter or a cook in a restaurant, where volunteers can prep food, serve seniors or wash dishes. I get a great feeling serving breakfast to the seniors every time I volunteer there. It is interesting to meet some of the seniors because they are pleasant people, especially in the morning. In addition, I like giving my support to a small nonprofit.
