Volunteer Story

by | Apr 8, 2020

I have been an IVC Service Corps member IVC for over nine years. I joined after retiring from a 40-year career in sales. I volunteer at Catholic Charities Emergency Services in downtown Syracuse. I love it. There is plenty of action and countless ways to help people. The people with whom I work, are outstanding, including Hank C., also an IVC Service Corps Member. Our place is busy and filled with folks who need our assistance.

Once a month the Syracuse IVC volunteers meet at Le Moyne College to compare notes, as well as to discuss the current readings. I sense that all our volunteers are enthusiastic about their work.

I was fortunate to attend a Jesuit high school and college. In part due to IVC, I now understand more clearly what the Jesuits were talking about in our philosophy classes many years ago.
