Volunteering at Irving Cares is a pleasure. It is an organization that truly cares for people in need. The staff is the greatest. It is fun serving them and watching their faces when they receive their food.

It has been a very rewarding experience volunteering at Irving Cares. When individuals encounter hard times, they know there is a community based facility that will help them out. Irving Cares can help with food, finances, and referrals. It is all good!

I am a fairly new volunteer having only been with Irving Cares a little over a year. The reason I picked this Non Profit, is because it is not intended as a way of life, but a helping hand thru a little bump in life's roads.

I have been a volunteer at Irving Cares for about 10 years. A strong staff and many many dedicated non paid volunteers who treat clients with dignity and respect. I'm proud to be a small part of this fine organization. I enjoy being both a donor and volunteer.

I volunteer at the Irving Cares Food Pantry and have for several years. I just LOVE doing it. I can clearly see the need in the people who come there. And love to see the joy when they receive their food. Especially enjoy seeing joy on the little children's faces. I know that I am doing something good and sometimes feel like I get more out of it than the clients. Will be doing this for a LONG time, I pray.

Irving Cares continues to provide nutritious food and helpful services with compassion and dignity for Irving residents facing crisis. They truly are a lifeline for the working poor, and have been for over 50 years. I am proud to work with the wonderful staff and volunteers.

I have been a volunteer and board member off and on since 1999. I have seen this agency grow along with the need in the community. The dedicated volunteers and amazing staff make Irving Cares an extremely effective yet personal agency. The mission has remained constant over time, and families are being helped every day, thanks to their commitment and skills.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

I have been volunteering in the food pantry for about a year and a half. I love it!!! It is so rewarding to be a part of providing a temporary help to someone in need. They always say thank you and I feel I should thank them for giving me the pleasure of doing something for them. They are very proud people and there but for the grace of God, I could be in their shoes. I try to always be pleasant with them. I love my job at Irving Cares, and although I'm a "newby" I hope I can do this for many years to come.

I live in Irving. I am thankful that an organization like Irving Cares exists to help the least of us in my community. Losing a job or having an emergency that destroys your finances can happen to anyone. Those situations are humbling. But, at Irving Cares, they help people without heaping shame on them. In emergency situations, you just need a little help to get back on your feet. That's why I like Irving Cares.

Irving Cares is a fantastic organization.As a single person of my age,I really felt uneasy about having to ask for any type of assistance for getting groceries.However, the staff was very friendly and treated me with respect.I am between jobs and simply did not have any groceries left and I was able to get enough food to last at least a week or two untill I start getting a regular paycheck.All the items I received were fresh and some were a better quality than what I buy when I am working.I appreciate and am thankful to all who volunteer,work,donate, or in whatever capacity they help. I am very pleased with my experince at Irving Cares.

I began volunteering at Irving Cares when the arrival of Katrina survivors overwhelmed the ability of this agency to meet their emergency needs. But I have continued to volunteer there each week in the food pantry because of the truly dedicated staff and volunteers. Their commitment to improving the quality of life for Irving residents is outstanding. Each time I work, I am reminded that the opportunity to put good, nutritious food on the table is a blessing that many of us take for granted. I also want to recognize our vendor partners and individuals who donate excess food so that it can be redistributed to our neighbors in need.
