Review for North County Community Food Bank, Battle Ground, WA, USA
Changing lives one meal at a time!
I have volunteered at the NCCFB for over ten years and fill the food boxes and re-stock the shelves.
Our caring for each other as a community goes way beyond the food we give out! in
Today for example I will deliver a bag of clothes my son outgrew to a grandmother who is raising her 12 old grandson. The joy I will get to see on his face will make my day!!! These clothes are well used and yet to him they represent a chance to look "cool" and share what my son has enjoyed! This grandmother is letting me sign my name on a card and be included in a gift she is giving to Theresa for the passing of her mother-in-law. The service is open to us all and set for this coming Saturday.
Volunteers and clients alike share our small town of Battle Ground. We know and care about each other. We see each other at the post office, gas station and hardware store. We help each other out in ways that go way beyond the monthly food box. We are all truly friends!!!
I would not have met any of these wonderful people if I were not a volunteer at NCCFB! I love to go in and volunteer. I consider the volunteers and staff and client as some of my best friends! If I ever needed their help I know they would be right there for me. We care a lot about each other in our small town.
Our NCCFB allows all of this to happen. Without this organization I don't know how all of the people who depend on our help would make it through their hard times!!!
Our food bank is extra special. I better close now because the young grandson is waiting for me to deliver his latest bag of "new " clothes!
