When I was in 9th grade my mom nagged me to volunteer all the time to get hours for college so we chose a location relative to our home which ended up to be Minnie's. I'm moving on to my junior year in high school and I'm still here volunteering. Minnie's has an environment that draws people back to volunteer, the energetic and friendly environment really helps work get done.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change it

I first found out about Minnie's pantry when my mom lost her job and was struggling on putting food on the table for me and my brother. She applied for food stamps but got denied, luckily he found Minnies food pantry and we started going here every Sunday for food plus even volunteering then getting the food at the end. I have found this pantry way better than any other I've been to and I'm always willing to volunteer at anytime. Me and my mom Isn't struggling now but i still come to volunteer because I've always felt good helping my community, and meeting new friends with similar interests of why they're here.

Minnie's Food Pantry is an amazing place! They make everyone that walks through the door feel like a celebrity by rolling out the red carpet and serving everyone with a smile. This is a fun place to volunteer and really makes you feel like you are making a difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more donations so we could help more people in need!

I am one of two interns at Minnie's Food Pantry for the summertime, and allow me to shed some light on the situation: THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!! I absolutely love coming into work everyday, because everyday is new!! Sarah (the other intern) and I have been able to work in different areas and experience it all; we WOman the desks, sort through the food, create kiddie and day labor bags, make boxes, and so much more!! Seeing the face of clients we have helped gives this overwhelming, indescribable feeling!! Minnie's runs a professional business, but with the idea that the clients are stars!! The staff and volunteer always have smiles on their faces and make everyone into one big happy family!! Minnie's is the place to be!! :)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything!! Minnie's is an amazing place and works so hard!!

Leaders of volunteers give the vision of the pantry first, followed by how recent changes are increasing the value to the community. We worked with smiles!

This was my first time volunteering here. Everyone working here made me feel so welcome. I could not believe how much food goes out here on a daily basis. Cheryl also told me about her bigger vision of getting more than just food items for the people who come here for help. She wants to help them to be able to provide for themselves. What a blessing Minnie's place is!!!
