Review for FOOD FINDERS INC, Long Beach, CA, USA
Shortly after retirement,I began to explore different avenues that could benefit by my participation. My life changed when I met Arlene Mercer, founder and director of an extraorinary organization called "Food Finders". My search for fullfillment ended as my envolvement grew in becoming a productive asset to the growth and well being to my community and city. Along with volunteering to pick up excess goods from local markets, I then delivered them direct to the approved needy agencies. This routine became as necessary to me as breathing in and breathing out. With all the heartwarming smiles, god bless you's, see you next week and always the many thank you's made me realize what a difference I was making in so many lives. The joy of giving. For the big picture, of which all the volenteers are a part, Food Finders for the year 2010 have collected seven million lbs. of food and served approximately 50,000 meals per day. Some searh for a pot of gold at the end of rainbow. I found mine in my own backyard--Me! The pot of gold is my health and ability to better serve my community and my rainbow is made up of all the people that I service and together we create a GlOW felt by all.
