I participate in Simpson's Tools for Schools program, providing backpacks and school supplies for kids in their shelters. I enjoy picking out school supplies and packing the bags. I love to think of the kids that maybe get a kick out of new notebooks, highlighters, and pencil boxes, like I did when I was a kid.
This is the most rewarding place I have ever volunteered. It is a feeling you cannot receive anywhere else; or from anyone else. I would recommend this to anyone who is in school and pursuing a career to better the future in any way. Simpson treats us with respect and the residents who reside there are truly grateful for the services they receive! Give a helping hand :)
They provide a very important service, their training is great and the staff is very professional. They treat their volunteers and clients with dignity. Shelter overnights are a great time to catch up on reading as wells as work or school.

This is a wonderful place to volunteer with a group of friends, and creating a nutritious and filling meal for the shelter guests is a pleasure. There are many ways Simpson give you to partner with them!
