Tom Hire, a Care and Share volunteer of several years, has always had a passion for helping others. After having worked with the American Red Cross for some time, Tom and his wife rediscovered their desire to serve their community and decided to join the efforts of Care and Share. As soon as they started, they were pleasantly surprised by the true compassion demonstrated by other volunteers and the fulfilling nature of giving their time to the local hungry. Three hours of volunteering weekly quickly became four, then five, until Tom became a fully dedicated volunteer at the food bank. Helping people who simply do not have enough is what Tom cares about the most.
