I have been volunteering with Yad Ezra for the past 6 months. I have loved every minute of it. The fellow volunteers are so sweet and kind and the clients are very appreciative. I have worked in other nonprofit establishments, and rarely do you get to interact directly with the clients like you do at Yad Ezra. It is a very rewarding experience.

Ask that more people volunteer for Yad Ezra. They won't regret it.

I and my husband are getting help from Yad Ezra Kosher Food Pantry in Berkley for more than 5 years now. We impressed by the way this non-profit branch operated. All staff and volunteers are treated us with respect and dignity at most friendly manner and very helpful in choosing for us one particular kind product from what is available on a shelves. And there are always some "extras" like fresh vegetables and fruits etc. and other "goodies". The place is always clean and the whole process is well organised even in most crowded evenings before Holidays. And there is always some thing special (including information about particular Holidays). We feel privileged to be under care of such a thoughtful people at a time when we in need.
We wishing them all the best in their life.

I started working with Yad Ezra through our synogogue several years ago. We started out delivering meals to home bound clients. We enjoyed helping people that were not able to travel to get the food themselves.
Now I am working at the main building assistings the mobile clients with getting their food. It is very gratifying to see the quality of the food as well as the quanity that each person gets to sustain them through the month.
There are a varity of things to do and the people I work with are lots of fun.

I have been volunteering at Yad Ezra for the past 5 years. I cam to Yad Ezra because of my feeling of the importance of providing food for those who has none. What I found here was a warm collaboration between staff and volunteers all directed towards serving an ever growing clientele.

Sometimes there are to many volunteers and we have to be more creative in using our time toward good effect but that just speaks to the reputation Yad Ezra has in the community and people's desire to be apart of their mission.

I am a retired school teacher. Volunteerism was something I knew I would do once I had more free time. I feel so rewarded with this job. I have met the most incredible and kindest people I have ever known. From the workers to the clients to students who volunteer their time...everyone is an important part of the plan. I am humbled and honored to serve those in need at Yad Ezra.

Yad Ezra is the epitome in the concept of "giving back". Our community takes care of those in need. I have volunteered here for over ten years and know that those we help are very grateful for the food they receive. Every client is treated with dignity and respect. Every day at Yad Ezra is a good day.

After volunteering for two years at Yad Ezra, I have the utmost respect for all that they do. They seem to be very financially responsible, in that there is a limited number of paid staff. There are a great deal of volunteers who gladly perform many diverse tasks.
Yad Ezra is a food kosher food pantry for the entire community. It even services the Flint area.
It is a real honor to be involved with such a wonderful organization.

It has been a privilege to help distribute food to those who do not have adequate sources of food. I have witnessed the way the privacy and dignity of Yad Ezra is handled.

Have a van for deliveries to area not served. I would add an attractive reception area for clients.
