This group helps feed over 96,000 folks in WNY each year. I used to just help my company do can fund drives. However, last year, I was rear ended by a drunk driver, and my whole life was irreparably changed. Having had to rely on others for donations from their food pantries gave new meaning to me. It was indeed a humbling experience. SO, when I had the chance to "give back" to the Food Bank, by helping with a food drive at the Erie County Fair, I decided to take it. It was easy to sign up by e-mail, and a great way to give back to a group that literally made sure I didn't starve. They were easy to work with, and the people I met through it, were very glad to give of their time, as well. We corresponded back and forth by e-mail and they mailed out free parking passes, and a free fair pass (although I needed two, as I was volunteering with another person- so we had to fix that snag before the day).

Ways to make it better...

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

Be sure the letters that go out to volunteers are more specific with directions. The only fly in the ointment was that they sent me a letter asking for a monetary donation before I had even volunteered for them at the fair. And, since I had explained in my personal experience of bring in dire financial straits, it made it seem like they hadn't read my correspondence at al.
