My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for North County Community Food Bank, Battle Ground, WA, USA
I have been a volunteer at the NCCFB since I moved to Battle Ground a little over two years ago. I have worked with much larger food banks, such as Four Square, but they don't come close to the sincere compassion and sense of community that comes from the staff at North Clark County, WA. By working there and greeting clients as they check in, I have had an opportunity to get to know them by their first name. If they don't show up for several weeks, I worry about them and pray for them. Some older senior clients can't see well or don't know what some of the produce items are, or how to prepare them. We are glad to help them with selections and answer questions and they are most appreciative.
I have watched the organization grow so much the building is overcrowded and ready to split at the seams. However, the staff and volunteers just keep on pushing through to serve our clients. For many people in the community, it is their only source of nutrition.
I think of my volunteer efforts as something I am blessed to do. I love how people in the community, church and schools as well as other civic and philanthropic groups come together to help others in need.
