Volunteer Testimonials

"We've been doing this [Thanksgiving Meal], for thirty years. The original owner of our bank, he donated money every year. We've continued doing this because personally, we get a lot out of it. As I always say to everybody when we get back to the office and we talk about what we did, this staff and group are phenomenal. We get so much out of it and look forward to it every year."
Kevin Kenny, VP of Santander Bank
“It was awesome to see everyone work together so well to complete the same common goal and make the 5k as fun as possible.”
“ This volunteer opportunity was awesome as a PT student because it is not typical PT work, but I got to see the ways so many different people move while completing the 5K. It also was fulfilling to help people set up an event they have worked so hard to make happen.”
“The only thing hotter than the dogs was the burning passion I saw in those who participated”
FREE is doing tremendous work in our communities and shares the same values of our founder Vincent Costello. At Costello's ACE, it is our privilege to serve our community and community partners such as FREE. Being locally owned we just don't work in our community, we live here as well. Thank you FREE for all that you do for us all."
