National Volunteer Week

DECATUR- In observance of National Volunteer Week WAND News visited with a few volunteers who help an organization that functions mainly by the efforts of volunteers.

The Good Samaritan Inn feeds more than 300 hundred people day during their free meal offered at lunchtime... accomplishing the goal with the help of ten to twelve volunteers a day.

One volunteer shared why volunteering monthly at Good Samaritan Inn is nothing out of the ordinary for him.

He said, "Just growing up we learned at an early age if somebody is hungry and if you've got it you share it."

Volunteers are needed daily at the inn and in the course of a month services are provided to those less fortunate in the community through the combined efforts of over four hundred volunteers per month.
