Buckeye Volunteers Spring (Clean) Into Action

There may have been a little snow on the ground Saturday morning, but our superb group of student volunteers from the Ohio State University’s “Pay it Forward” program came to NNEMAP with willing hands and warm hearts.

In just a few short hours, our 10 guests swept and mopped the client waiting area; deep-cleaned inside, under and behind our freezers; assisted with some equipment repairs; repackaged about 100 pounds of bulk flour and sugar; organized our shopping bag and cart area; assembled a pair of shelving units; and redesigned our display board.

Best of all, they did it with great enthusiasm and cheerful smiles:

2016-04-09 OSU Vols-1   2016-04-09 OSU Vols-3 2016-04-09 OSU Vols-4   2016-04-09 OSU Vols-5

We’re not positive, but we’re pretty sure they slipped off and did even more incredibly helpful things for us when we weren’t looking. When we opened for business on Monday, our building was squeaky clean.

Thanks again to our student friends at Pay it Forward. When we need a special group of volunteers, we know we can always “Go Bucks!”
