Patti has been a valuable member of our volunteer team for the last nine months. Starting in our clothing processing area, Patti has moved into a volunteer administration role, helping our team with scheduling, reports, and so much more.
Patti says, “Salt & Light is my family. I came here out of a rough season in my life. I had lost all self-esteem and felt alone. The staff has never looked down on me or expected me to be someone I’m not. I know that I am valued and cared for now. My self-esteem is back! I have made true friends at Salt & Light.”

Chris has been volunteering at Salt & Light for about 2 years. He performs multiple tasks including working in the admin office, handing out locks and vests, makes copies and keeping the copier filled, restocking the restrooms, cleaning and organizing our break room, accepting donations, and helping on the truck.
But Chris’s biggest job here is talking to people. He loves getting to know their stories. You can always find him talking with someone and joking around with them.
Chris loves serving with our team and can be found in our Champaign store regularly. On the wall in our our processing area (also shown in Chris’s picture) it says, “Let the light shine by helping those in need”. Chris says that’s why he is here…to help others.
Dennis has been a valuable member of our volunteer team for almost two years! He has worked in both locations and currently helps keep our grocery shelves organized. But Dennis’s biggest role is that of friend. He greets everyone as if they have known each other for years and makes each person that walks through our doors feel welcomed and important.
Dennis says he loves being the “clown” of the team and particularly loves working with Nicolas (Grocery Manager) and Mike (Retail Director). According to Dennis, “Salt & Light is my big family.” We are grateful for Dennis’s heart and contribution to our ministry.
