A huge Thank You to all the volunteers for Collier Harvest!!

Collier Harvest is an almost 100% volunteer organizations with just 3 paid employees and roughly 120 volunteers. Many of our volunteers have been with us from the very beginning starting back in 1992. They bring with them their life experiences, skills, abilities, compassion and smiles. They volunteer for many different reasons. Some were involved with food banks up north and wanted to continue this work when they moved to Florida. Other volunteers have taken over the delivery routes originally done by their parents. Newer volunteers caught the Collier Harvest bug after working a Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Whatever the reason, they give their time generously without any expectation of reward. We could not do the work we do without our amazing, dedicated volunteers and for this we give thanks from the bottom of our hearts!

Volunteering with Collier Harvest

When you join Collier Harvest, you meet people who continually experience the joy of giving to less fortunate people in our area. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but we share the common goal of eliminating hunger in Collier County.

We are always looking for individuals and groups who are willing to help us with our mission. Church groups, service clubs and businesses often commit to one day a week where a member from their group will do a preassigned food pick up and delivery. Working in this manner groups can make a difference, and no one individual commits to a schedule that may be too demanding on an ongoing basis.

Volunteer Spotlight: Carol Dlouhy

How long have you volunteered with CH and what are your responsibilities? I have volunteered for the annual food drive for the last 3 years. Now I volunteer every month to pick up food at Publix to make 50 bags of groceries to feed 50 families for a week. We put the bags together at the Collier Harvest warehouse and then we deliver them the next morning to a Collier County School.

How did you hear about CH? I heard about the Post Office food drive and that they needed volunteers to box up food when it’s brought to the warehouse. I knew I had to be a part of that.

What made you want to volunteer? I have always tried to volunteer most of my life, from being a Candy Striper to teaching Sunday School, children’s choir and helping at a place called Friendship Corner where those who had nothing or no one would meet to get a good meal and a little activity. After moving here, I knew I needed to do something to give back for all the blessings that come my way.

What does volunteering mean to you? Volunteering means to serve and I believe that is why we are here. The Lord says, truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters, you did for me.
