Second Mile services the residents of Fort Bend County and focuses on residents living in poverty. They also help connect hundreds of volunteers with service opportunities. The Second Mile Mission Center helps meet basic needs by providing heatlhcare and food. There are lots of ways to volunteer with Second Mile but what I have done is work in the food pantry. I'll never forget the first time I took my boys with me to help. They asked me over and over why a food pantry was needed (they were only in 2nd & 3rd grade at the time). It's a great way for kids to work along side their parents because they always need help with stocking & sorting canned foods. There is also an Opportunity Shop that volunteers can work in. The shop sells high quality gently used items. Additionally, Second mile helps people find employment and manage their finances. These are just a few of the things volunteers can do at Second Mile- there are more!
