Volunteers Form New Friendship at Cross-Lines

Cross-Lines volunteers James and Iziah take out the trash.


A dynamic duo, indeed! Iziah (left) and James (right) met while volunteering at Cross-Lines and quickly formed a strong and unique bond. You'll find this pair volunteering in the Market every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Iziah, who is on the autism spectrum, was encouraged by his mother, Eileen, to help at Cross-Lines to gain more job-like experience. James jumped at the chance to show Iziah around and help him grow accustomed to new experiences, meeting new people daily, and working independently.

Volunteers are truly invaluable to Cross-Lines and help us accomplish much more than we could on our own.

There are always opportunities to pitch in. Are you ready to help? Reach out to our Volunteer Manager, Roxanne Vega-
