Employee Spotlight: Tricia Thomas

Every month we like to introduce one of the many fabulous employees who help Care and Share fulfill its mission.

This month we are featuring our Food Procurement Coordinator, Tricia Thomas.

“My name is Tricia Thomas, and I am the Food Procurement Coordinator for Care and Share Food Bank For Southern Colorado. I have worked for Care and Share since January 2020. I had always wanted to be in the nonprofit sector and hunger was always my number one social cause.

I was born in Washington, D.C and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland. After graduating from college with a degree in Political Science, I worked at a number of different companies and stayed home with my now 26-year-old for a few years.  I could never seem to get my foot in the door in non-profit, so I volunteered at soup kitchens, food pantries, etc.

In January of 2017, my husband and I moved to Colorado Springs. I started working as an insurance adjuster and it just was not my calling, so I applied at Care and Share and got the job. I am responsible for our Retail Donation Program, and I field many of our food donation calls and set up the logistics for those donations. I love the work and the mission, and I am always looking to cultivate new donors and keep our existing donors happy.

In my spare time, I love to read, explore, and learn. My husband and I enjoy traveling, and now that we are in Colorado, we have started getting back into camping. I am grateful every day that I work for Care and Share, and I am helping make a difference in southern Colorado.”
