From Colorado Springs, CO
Story Type: Volunteers
Janele Johnson has been volunteering at Care and Share Food Bank for several years. She remembers sorting donated food with her boys at Care and Share’s old distribution center. Now, at our current distribution center, she’s able to help in a unique way. Once a week, she gives orientation tours to groups of people interested in volunteering at the food bank. As part of the tour, she teaches participants about the history of our organization, the work we do across Southern Colorado, how volunteers help and how to sign up for shifts. Janele says when it comes to volunteer options at Care and Share, she likes that there’s a lot to choose from. “I think the people who work for Care and Share are wonderful. I’ve always like meeting new people and I also just love the whole idea of Care and Share’s mission- the idea of bridging the gap between hunger and abundance I think is especially important in a country where nobody should go hungry,” Janele said.
