Ben Dobson is truly an exceptional volunteer. In the year that he's volunteered with us, Ben has tackled just about every task from van assisting to kitchen prep to office help and even helping out at special events. Whatever task he's working on, he does an amazing job and gives it his all. Manager of Client Services, Chad Balodis has this to say about Ben: "Ben is an indispensable volunteer in Client Services who is just as personable as he is capable. All of us in CSD look forward to the days that he comes in to help. He is a shining example of all the volunteers who selflessly give their time to helping those in need. We are very lucky to have him with us."

How did you find out about God's Love? I was referred to Kate by Elizabeth from Patagonia in Soho.
You've volunteered for just about every shift. Do you have a favorite and, if so, why? I try where I think I can help and learn at the same time. I love this organization. After all these years, it still continues to find ways to accomplish the mission daily. It's a great feeling working with people who embrace it and supporting clients who appreciate us for being there for them.
What do you like to do when you're not volunteering? Enjoy time with my family and friends. Make music, check out the arts, watch sports and try new things.
Favorite place in NYC: What I love about NYC is the small outdoor Mediterranean-style cafes all over.
Best meal you've ever had: Tough to say. I always loved eating a big bowl of salad with fresh vegetables and I enjoyed anything spicy, especially Caribbean food.
And finally... what's the one thing you'd bring with you on a desert island??? Nice comfortable hammock. I loved being on islands since I was a kid and I appreciated my hammock. When I lived in Florida years ago, I was even given an indoor hammock as a gift.
