Story Type: Volunteers
Carl Reese has been volunteering at Care and Share Food Bank for the past three years. As a Peer Coordinator, he helps supervise and lead volunteer groups as they sort and repack food. “I’ve known about Care and Share for years,” Carl said. “I retired a couple years ago, and I was looking for something to do. I tried a couple different places, and this is the one that works for me.
Carl enjoys the physical activity that is involved in his volunteered shifts. He’s always moving around the distribution center, making sure volunteer groups are supplied with food to sort and organizing the work areas. He says he enjoys the feeling he gets assisting fellow volunteers and giving back to our community. “I think it’s good to help people in your community who are less fortunate.”
