Story Type: Volunteers
Donna Apgar has been volunteering at Care and Share since 2016. Her involvement first began when she volunteered as part of a group for one of our Mobile Food Pantry distributions. Donna enjoyed it so much that she became a regular volunteer, and now she organizes and leads the efforts at that Mobile Food Pantry site. Each month, she and her fellow volunteers help prepare for the distribution by bagging produce, arranging tables, and setting food out for Mobile Food Pantry visitors to take home. Donna and other volunteers ensure the food distribution runs smoothly and that every visitor is treated with dignity and respect. They give out protein, such as meat and beans, and a variety of fruits and vegetables to neighbors in need.
Donna says her favorite part of volunteering is getting to meet all the wonderful people who come to the Mobile Food Pantry. She says that her work with the program is rewarding and she enjoys being able to serve the community.
