Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a new project coordinator for Lunch Buddies. I am excited to be working with you all and hope to see more awesome volunteers take up such a great opportunity at this site! Please contact me if you have any questions about volunteering here, training, transportation, etc.

We are close to the end of this semester and I have seen great progress with both Jefferson and Newcomers. Both of these sites started off slow, but have been running full strength now for about a month. I cannot thank all my volunteers enough for the hard work they put into these sites. My goal is to not only have these sites running but also coming up with new activities and new ways to benefit both of these schools. Be looking for new events in the future. Thanks.
