When I retired a year and a half ago, I went looking for a way to help people in my area... I liked Amazing Grace Food Pantry from the day I walked in. They emphasized helping neighbors, treating people with dignity, and doing it an all volunteer team. After volunteering for several months I felt so strongly that they were "doing things right" that I joined their board of directors. I love working there as everyone works hard, treats clients and volunteers with respect, and we have fun. My grandkids really enjoy volunteering with me when they are not in school so it provides a great atmosphere/example of helping others. Fighting Hunger Together is not just our tag line, it is what we do daily.
Volunteers are dedicated and serve with open arms and hearts. AGFP provides clients with a grocery cart worth of groceries every week, along with other items as available. I love being a part of this amazing organization!
