From Colorado Springs, CO
Story Type: Volunteers
Ginger is a dedicated and consistent volunteer, lending her time and passion toward furthering Care and Share Food Bank’s mission. You can find her greeting folks from our partner food pantries and meal sites as they come in to pick up nutritious food to serve to our neighbors in need.
She says, after retiring, it was a friend who sparked her interest in getting involved in the community by volunteering. The first time she stepped foot into our distribution center, she knew she found a place that would be a good fit. “This is the best place on the planet to volunteer… I’ve volunteered at several other places. This is the only place that has kept me busy 100 percent of the time and I feel like I’m really contributing to this community.”
She told us she would describe Care and Share as “valuable.” We would say the same of our volunteers.
