I am so proud to be a part of ICS! Compassion and caring is seen everyday through the staff and volunteers. The organization has grown over the three years I have been a board member and I know it is because of the committment and dedication of all at ICS to our community. The food bank supports so many of our folks in the community. In my daily job, I am a Director of Quality at a hospital in Tucson. The high level of quality care by ICS for our community is commendable!
As a Board Member I have seen the careful planning and stewardship of this organization. I have also seen how they very effectively use the donated resources to meet the many needs of seniors and others who have a real immediate need for their services. They are also a very effective organization in enabling city wide religious organizations be involved in their community in a caring way.
I've seen the dollars raised go the the recepients because ICS utilizes their volunteers so well. The structure of gathering volunteer labor from many faith communities is a real winner for everyone involved: both the giver and the receiver!
Interfaith Community Services (ICS) has more than doubled the output of its Food Bank operation in the last four years. Staffed by caring, compassionate volunteers ICS serves up to 90 clients per day out of a meager 400 square foot facility. The Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving more than 400 families received a special holiday gift box. Last week a community food drive raised more than 25,000 pounds of food for the operation. Our clients are so grateful for helping them make it through tough times.
