No day is the same - I have lots of variety in my position:  calling volunteers to find substitutes when someone cancels, picking up commodities to transport them to a Seniors Morning Out program, conducting annual re-assessments for seniors in our frozen meals program, bagging frozen meals for volunteers to pick up, or placing orders for frozen meals.
