I am the volunteer coordinator at Matthew's Crossing Food Bank. I have been involved with MC since it began. We serve anyone in need of food. However, most of our clients are the working poor and those looking for work. This is an awesome expeience. We have around 100 dedicated volunteers. Each year we are able to help more people because our generous partners donate to those less fortunate.Volunteering gave me a sense of purpose after my employment years had past.Matthew's Crossing holds a special place in my heart.

Matthew's crossing has made great progress in the past year. We now provide an extra weekly bag of groceries to 100 to 150 clients. Our holiday dinners will be available for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. We now are able to provide :infant bags" containing needed supplies for infants to toddlers.

One of the most helpful additions is our new computers. When a server is added (soon, I hope) it will make logging in clients much faster.

We are blessed with a generous and supportive community.

I have been a volunteer at Matthew's Crossing Food Bank since we begin as a church sponsored organization in 2001. This project has provided a win win situation. It provides food for hungry families and gives me the opportunity to meet wonderful, hard working clients who just need a little help. Though we are no longer church sponsored, the positive atmosphere remains a key practice. Good people helping good people! How much better can that get!

I have volunteered at Matthew's Crossing for two years and to experience first hand the impact this organization has on those in need is humbling. Recently two volunteers assembled recipes that are tasty, easy to use and work well with the food that's distributed. To see the joy on the faces of children when they are given a book or supplies for school, help someone who is homeless with food and a list of resources and have everything a mother needs for her newborn. Matthew's Crossing is more than just a food bank.

Have faith. Volunteer. End hunger.

The people who volunteer their time at the Food bank are amazing people. Not only do their care about their jobs they care about the people who they are blessed to meet every day. They keep rising to the challenge when the numbers keep rising in our area for help. Keep up the good work we appreciate you all more then you will know.

Matthew's Crossing continues to reach out to more of the working poor each year that need some help when they just can't make ends meet. We are so thankful to have wonderful volunteers and supporters that help us to make a difference in the community.
The real success for us is when a family
that we've helped in the past comes back to donate food to help other's because they are working again and want to give back. Priceless!!

Matthews-Crossing is a small treasure I found one year ago, when it drew me in as a volunteer. As the newest member of my team, I have great admiration for this group. I believe most of them have been there since its inception, and they are truly dedicated, kind and generous. Matthews-Crossing provides assistance without delving into clients' personal lives and without prejudice. We get people from all backgrounds and levels of society, and all are graciously welcomed and given the same respect as any other citizen walking through our doors. Our clients are treated with dignity, which is evident by the numerous compliments they give us, and for that we are grateful. When they cry, we try to reassure them, and when they're exuberant because they just found a job, we share in their joy. But we also know they need more than food to sustain themselves, so our volunteers often bring in diapers, hygiene products, books, and little extras that make such a big difference to every day living; things many people just take for granted. When the summer heat reaches 115 degrees, we make sure there are bottles of water for them, especially our homeless clients, and those walking or riding bicycles. I like to think of Matthews-Crossing as a little oasis for the people going through difficult times.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Just in the year I've been there, we've moved to a larger space, which means we have more room for food donations, and in the summer, people can wait inside, instead of out in the heat. My personal experience is that I go home feeling thankful for what my Creator has given me, and rewarded to have met some very unique people.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get more information out to the community and let them know what we're doing. Perhaps in this way we can get more funding and assistance from clubs and citizens.

I have been volunteering at Matthew's Crossing Food Bank almost since it's inception and have watched it grow in the numbers of people that we are able to serve. We turn no one away and help fill the needs of our clients both physically and emotionally. Our goal is to serve the communities needy and bring smiles and hope to each and every one who comes through our doors.

Last holiday season Matthew’s Crossing was the recipient of our companies food drive. This organization is community focused and we could clearly see the positive impact our contributions made. The Staff at Matthew’s Crossing is delightful to work with. They provided great stewardship in aligning their needs with our season of giving program, creating a very positive response from office staff. The level of professionalism of the staff and the ability to fill a need in the community place Matthew’s Crossing on the top of our list of organizations to support.

We own a teambuilding company and regularly hold philanthropic events where clients buy non-perishable food items, use them in a game, and then donate them. I had always donated to the larger food banks and then discovered Matthews Crossing - and there was no going back. At all times, I have found them to be warm, welcoming and helpful - especially when unloading 8,000 food items!! Keep up the great work!
