My experience of working at a nonprofit are extremely gratifying personally. Having been in a past situation needing assistance has made me more aware of those in need. I take personal pride in distributing quality items. I hope whoever receives an item will know that care went into packing the boxes and that they will eventually be able to pass it forward. i believe that Food Bank of the Rockies is dedicated to the cause!

I volunteered and had so much fun sorting food and boxing it to go out to the needy. The facility is huge and very clean. It was hard work, but very rewarding.
