At Classroom Central, we have the most amazing volunteer support system. Since we just have a staff of eleven, we rely on our volunteers to help us achieve our mission. We have several schools that help us with store stocking. As we have a lean staff, we truly appreciate all their manpower so that we can keep our Free Store running! Our volunteer spotlights are a way of showcasing those individuals and groups.

Fred Caldwell, student: “Even though I get tired, I like volunteering and working with Ms. Risa! She keeps me in ‘check’ and lets me know when I’m doing good and bad! Thank you Ms. Risa for all that you have done for me and my classmates!”
