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.
