Review for Kendall County Food Pantry Inc, Yorkville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MY NAME IS RON DU BROCK AND HAVE BEEN A VOLUNTEER AT THE KENDALL COUNTY FOOD PANTRY FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS. IN THE TIME WHEN THE PANTRY WAS GETTING STARTED TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTY THROUGH BAD TIMES IN THEIR LIVES DUE TO SICKNESS AND DISTRESS, LAID OFF FROM EMPLOYMENT, AND OTHER UNFORTUNATE TIMES. WE HAVE HELPED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. AND PEOPLE WHO WERE SO GRATEFUL HAVE COME BACK TO HELP VOLUNTEER OR THROUGH DONATIONS. THE KCFP HAS GROWN FROM 40 FAMILIES A WEEK TO OVER 200 FAMILIES PER WEEK WITH AN AVERAGE OF BETWEEN 800 TO A THOUSAND PEOPLE PER WEEK. THE SYSTEM THAT IS PUT TOGETHER BY MARIA SPAITH, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS HELPED KENDALL COUNTY OF ILLINOIS TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST ORGANIZATIONS TO WORK FOR. THE PANTRY OPERATES AT 99% EFFICIENTLY AND SO THANKFUL FOR THAT. THE VOLUNTEERS ARE LIKE A FAMILY ALL WHO PUT THEIR EFFORT INTO IT TO MAKE IT WORK. THE KCFP HAS GROWN FROM A BASEMENT WITH NO HEAT IN THE WINTER AND NO AIR CONDITION IN THE SUMMER TO A WARE HOUSE LARGE ENOUGH TO ACCOMMODATE SO MANY PEOPLE. I THANK GOD EVERY DAY FOR PROVIDING THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE.

Role:  Volunteer & DIRECT PEOPLE FROM FIRST COME TO THE WARE HOUSE.
