“Volunteering at the Food Bank was a fun yet humbling experience. Fun meeting and working alongside other volunteers from the community as well as bonding with co-workers.

Proud to work for a company who encourages and supports their employees to participate in community outreach.” – M. VanBuskirk

“The experience I had volunteering at the food bank was so eye-opening. It’s crazy when you are there and doing what we did that you realize how many kids go without food/nutrition. It was so humbling and made my heart so happy. Lori and I worked at a table with a couple of little girls that were there giving their time as well. They were so fun and so into it. To know that children are helping children and having the first-hand experience in seeing these girls work diligently right beside us just I realize there is hope in making this world a much better place. I for one will be extending my personal time to volunteer when I can. Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have….”  – C. Shadrick
