Story Type: Volunteers
The success of Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado is in large part thanks to our dedicated volunteers. One of those devoted volunteers is Cynthia (Cindy) Tamsett. Cindy has been a volunteer for three years and is fully committed to making a difference in our community. Her hard work and dedication as a volunteer has inspired other volunteers to take initiative and make the commitment to ensure Care and Shares’ basic needs are met. “I volunteer because of the benefit of being surrounded by passionate people,” comments Cindy. “I love people, I care about people, and I enjoy helping those in need.”
When Cindy is volunteering, you can typically find her in our Distribution Center leading the volunteer groups and assisting Care and Shares’ Sorting and Packing Coordinators. She enjoys sorting and packing, recycling, and helping during special events.
Cindy would encourage everyone to try volunteering at Care and Share. “It’s so worth it. There are people out there that you don’t even know need help,” Cindy expressed. “It’s really rewarding to know you are helping and it gives a sense of fulfillment.”
