Hero Among Us: Sharon Makes a Difference During Sabbatical

Volunteers are the heart and soul of any non-profit organization. They dedicate their time, energy, and skills to making a real difference in the lives of others. This National Volunteer Month, we’d like to shine a spotlight on Sharon, a dedicated volunteer from Principled Technologies, who used her sabbatical to give back to the community through Urban Ministries of Wake County. 

During her time with us, Sharon wasn’t just volunteering; she was immersing herself in the heart of our mission. She spent time sorting and distributing food essentials in our Hunger and Nutrition Program (the food pantry), ensuring families facing food insecurity had access to nutritious meals. She also volunteered with The Helen Wright Center for Women, our housing program, where she served a warm meal to residents seeking shelter and support. 

Sharon’s experience is a testament to the diverse opportunities available with us. Whether you’re passionate about tackling hunger, supporting women in need, or providing quality healthcare, there’s a way for you to make a lasting impact. 

Sharon’s journey isn’t just about volunteering; it’s about finding purpose and connection. Want to see Sharon’s story unfold?
