Food Banks & Volunteers ....
This month was a busy time in our warehouse -
We started delivering an extra order of food or essentials this month to our agencies on top of what they normally pick up for thier weekly orders when we can. They have been very appreciative of everything we have been sending.
We are also recruting for some new volunteers to come and assist us with some sorting and repacking. If you work for a company that allows community volunteer time during the week and yourself and a couple of your co-workers wish to help out, please give us a call to set up a time, we are always willing to have someone come if only once or twice to help out in the warehouse.
Lauren our student placement is doing a wonderful job and we will all miss her sweet personality when she goes back to school in June!
Our Volunteers this month have been wonderful as usual with all their hard work in our warehouse and out on our trucks. Again should you or anyone you know wish to volunteer a bit of your time once a month, a week or less or more, please don't hesitate to contact us or drop by for a visit. We would love to give you a tour.

We assisted Open Hands Food Bank this month to help them hold on a bit longer as they were financially strained to stay open while waiting for the purchase of our new building to happen.
