  The Catholic Charities staff in Mansfield recently honored more than 60 volunteers during the annual Volunteer Luncheon at Lexington Resurrection Parish.

  The volunteers assist Catholic Charities in many ways, by answering phones at the front desk, serving as guardians for elderly clients in the Adult Advocacy Program, assisting clients in the HOPE Food Pantry and helping with the prescription, medical and rent assistance programs.

  The agency honored the Richland Newhope Options Program as Outstanding Community Volunteers for their work in the HOPE Food Pantry.

  "Catholic Charities is so blessed to have such wonderful volunteers," said Rebecca Owens, Catholic Charities Site Manager. "Without our volunteers, it would be hard to serve the community of Mansfield and Richland County."

  To learn more about volunteering with Catholic Charities, contact Rita Lemley at 419-524-0733, extension 222.
