Review for Hill Country Daily Bread, Boerne, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We moved to the hill country in late 2006 after retiring. My wife and I were looking for a charity in the community that needed volunteers and was really doing something important for people in this area. Our first exposure to HCDB was early in 2007 when we were invited to the spring gala. To be honest we enjoyed that event, but this did not really connect for us. Later in the year we helped with the Christmas gift packaging for families and through that visit got to learn the model for HCDB and see how they were serving the community. That did it. We decided then to become weekly volunteers. My wife has been helping in the office and I've found my spot in the warehouse. It has been a real blessing for me because I've learned to be more patient in the tasks, to relish the joy that I'm getting by serving others and to have my eyes open to the blessings God is working in so many different people who are serving and being served through HCDB.

Role:  Volunteer & I pack boxes for distribution, sort items for storage in the warehouse, drive trucks to collect donations and help organize pallets in the warehouse so that access is easier for all the volunteers.
