MATTHEWS CROSSING
August 21, 2013

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!
