Ginny Crippen has helped bag and distribute food twice a month for the Food Pantry for many years. In the last five years, she has helped the school children select their luncheon food. Since the school district in Fort Davis does not supply lunch, the Food Pantry provides lunch fixings for the children of its clients. Ginny also helps out with our fundraisers including Wheels for Meals and the Harvest Bowl. We have a working Food Pantry in Jeff Davis County because of constant support from Ginny Crippen.
Lupe Rubio is the first person to receive this award twice. She has volunteered at the Food Pantry since its inception in 1998. It has been ten years since her last volunteer of the year award and she is still assisting twice a month! She does everything and anything that needs doing – with a smile. She helps unload the delivery truck on Fridays, distribute the food on Saturdays and participates in all of the fundraising events. She is ready to help anyone with a question in either Spanish or English. Truly, because of Lupe’s generous assistance, there is a Food Pantry in Jeff Davis County. We thank Lupe from the bottom of our hearts.
