In the past few years I have had to ask for help in a couple of different areas. Food is the first and foremost need. I have needed to avail myself of the services of The Harry Chapin Food Bank. They volunteers are kind, helpful, and friendly. Everyone associated with the organization does their level best to be of assistance. I have found recently that when you are in need some people look upon you as though you are a bum. Just looking for a handout, in fact that is hardly ever the case. I hope to be able to return some of their kindness by volunteering in their organization.
The Harry Chapin Food Bank of SW Florida has a four star (highest) rating from Charity Navigator, meaning that this food bank effectively uses its funds to feed the poor and needy, rather than spending it on fundraising or organizational costs; this is a great food bank and deserves recognition!
