Review for Community Link, Saginaw, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’ve been helping out at Community Link for a few years now as a ‘shopper.’ After a client has a list filled out, I take that list and ‘shop’ for that client. Sometimes there’s only one person for that list; sometimes 8 or more. I gather everything from shampoo, canned veggies, fresh fruit, frozen meats, dairy....everything that a family needs to help feed them during a difficult time. Everything is put into grocery bags, then we load our items into their car. What really grabs your heartstrings is when a little child, waiting in the backseat, will grab something from those items to eat because, as their mom/dad/grandparent/guardian explains, there was no breakfast that morning and their little child was hungry. Makes you realize this place really makes a difference.
