My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA
I volunteer with a local Christian Radio Station that takes donations at events for Second Harvest, I also volunteer AT a local Pantry that gives out the donated food. There have been events I have worked to collect cans from the public, driven my fathers truck to pick up for the pantry and packed boxes for folks whom come in. The Lord has blessed me to give, collect, distribute and even receive. Second Harvest of Gray GREATLY impacts our area in the TriCities and beyond. In 3 hours today we served 31 families of 114 people at our local Pantry. Carrying their boxes to their cars I ask how they heard about the Pantry and how they are doing. Times are hard and good people are hurting. Recently I made the trip to Sneedville with Second Harvest after the WCQR Thanksgiving Project where we raised funds for a food box and we delivered over 200 boxes into a hurting town. To see the folks at Gray work to fill every box was amazing. God bless you Second Harvest and EVERYONE who donates.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The difference we can make in a community, in a neighborhood and within someones heart. Maybe a recipient ...maybe a volunteer... everyone is touched by this ministry !!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Kind, faithful and looking to make a difference.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Loose it's focus. In my opinion a Ministry like this is always in need of the Lord. That much money would only serve to cause others to stop being involved.
Ways to make it better...
I could have stayed longer, worked harder and had more to give.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
SO many are numb to the need. The organization needs help getting the word out for others to realize the need.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I would like get the word out and to find a way to help everyday folks volunteer at Second Harvest locations, events and Mission Centers.
