watching people in need find the help that they require. I've personally felt the rewards of helping others. I've seen the joy volunteers feel when they realize the impact that they truly make in others lives.

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

go back to work for Food Bank of the Rockies.

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!

Knowing that I am helping the public with qualifed co-workers.

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.

How hard everyone works and how much food they send out to needy people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

GREAT! So helpful and friendly!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get even more food to the people who need it!

Hardest working most caring group of people I have every dealt with in a non-profit organization. When hearing stories of the people the food has helped it make you want to work even harder for this organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Come even closer to helping eliminate hunger in Colorado!!!
