VolunCare Crew

They build homes for the poor. They help feed the hungry. They work with young students to encourage reading and learning. They volunteer their time so developmentally disabled people can have a great place to live. And those are just a few examples of how ESL volunteers go out of their way to make a difference right here in Greater Rochester.


ESL employees donate thousands of hours every year to great non-profit organizations like the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Foodlink, Lifetime Assistance, and the United Way. And we support them by providing opportunities for paid time off so they can make an even bigger impact. So look around our community. You’ll often find hundreds of people with our distinctive ESL VolunCare Crew T-shirts carrying on a great ESL tradition: volunteering to make Greater Rochester an even better place to live and work. See Democrat & Chronicle article "ESL Workers Getting Paid to Volunteer at Holidays" for a story about ESL employees volunteering as Salvation Army bell ringers.
