Review for West Valley Community Services, Cupertino, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since I retired, I have been looking for volunteer opportunities. I help deliver groceries from West Valley Community Services to individual homes. It seems impossible, but 1 in every 4 people in "affluent Silicon Valley" is at risk for hunger.
I have the easy part, picking up food and driving. The staff at West Valley who assemble, sort and bag up the food are busy, but always friendly.
There is on particular woman who I meet each week. The only words I can understand when she speaks are "Thank you, thank you, thank you." She is always smiling, and waits on her porch and waves to me until I drive away.
It's little things like this that make me believe I am somehow trying to make a very small contribution to the greater good.
Thanks West Valley Community Services for the work you do!
