I had the opportunity to volunteer in the role of bookkeeping for a couple of weeks and I was astounded at the amount of work that goes on with so little staff. Fortunately, there are hundreds of volunteers that make this Organization unlike any I have seen and I have have seen a lot of them. They have quite a large budget and 100% of the income is from their Fundraisers and contributions from the Community at large. They do not receive any State or Federal funding and this is by choice of the local Board of Directors. The vast majority of the income is spent on food purchases which are supplemented by local donations of food. They currently serve between 400 and 500 meals per day, making sure that their client's needs are met such as those on special diets for diabetes, etc.. This is no easy task and my hat is off to the Director and her Staff for the great job that they do along with all of the dedicated volunteers that really make it work.
