LORD S PANTRY OF DOWNINGTOWN
December 20, 2009
I am in my second year as both a Board member and a volunteer. My experience is very positive. Everyone involved with the Lord's Pantry is a volunteer (i.e.- no one is on payroll). The Board is dedicated to help the Lord's Pantry achieve it's mission seeing that people do not go hungry in Chester County. The volunteers treat all clients with dignity. Clients get a shopping cart and pick out food that their family will eat (most other pantries provide clients with pre-selected food).
The Lords Pantry also provides special events for Back To School, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
The community has responded by providing funding for a fully furbished building in addition to the ongoing food donations.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the comraderie with other Board members, volunteers, and clients.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very giving people with a common goal of making sure that people in Chester County do not go hungry.
