Review for West Valley Community Services, Cupertino, CA, USA
I have been a volunteer in the Food Pantry at West Valley Community Services for over 4 years. Our mission is to unite the community in the fight against hunger and homelessness. I see this mission in action each time I am at WVCS. During my shift, I work one-on-one with approximately 30 clients who come to us for food. Our pantry model is based on dignity, respect and compassion. Each client "shops" in the pantry and chooses from the donated food that works best for them and their families. The local food vendors, farmers' markets, food distribution agencies and other generous donors are helping make a difference in the lives of families and individuals who are struggling to make ends meet and barely stay afloat. It is inspiring to be part of a community that cares. This is only one of many life-changing services that WVCS provides year round.
