Volunteer Spotlight: Michael L. Rayder, Jr., TD Charitable Foundation

I think volunteering is important, both personally, but also for my staff. We had been involved in United Way’s annual Day of Caring for many years, but this year, we started to participate on a quarterly basis. We’ve been volunteering at Wayside Food Programs the last couple of times preparing meals and working at their mobile food pantry site. Chopping veggies or stirring soup isn’t monotonous when you’re chopping and stirring to feed hundreds of people. As an added bonus, you can learn new and tasty recipes! One of my staff members makes the sausage kale soup from one of our projects on a regular basis! Her family loves it!



Volunteer Spotlight: Brian Cirone, Gorham Savings Bank

This year, at the Gorham Savings CA$H Saturday tax prep event, the software went down and we struggled to reschedule people. One couple had to come back a few times and was a bit frustrated. In the end, the tax preparers realized they could have been claiming their adult daughter with disabilities as a tax credit for years. They received over $10,000 back and it was an amazing result for a client. I wasn’t a direct witness, but the story reminds me why we continue the hard work and remove barriers whenever possible.
