Congratulations to Our 2014 Volunteers of the Year

i Feb 3rd No Comments by

Volunteers – community members like you – donate over 1200 volunteer hours every year to the Food Pantry. Volunteers contribute REAL WORK that makes it possible for the Pantry to successfully carry out its mission. Our volunteers are enthusiastic, dedicated to alleviating hunger, and highly reliable. In 2014, we instituted our Volunteer Training and Appreciation Luncheon to take place after distribution, the third Saturday of January. Our volunteers deserve to have the tools they need to be successful in their many tasks.  WE THANK YOU ALL!!


Melanie and John Pace – Brenda Bell Volunteers of the Year Award 2014

When Melanie Pace joined the Board of the Directors as treasurer in 2011, she jumped right in to help out in all the fundraisers. She and her husband John would help set up the tent for the Coolest Fourth event, she joined the Wheels for Meals as a rider and even baked cookies for the Harvest Bowl. Now she and John are busy with their own business, but they still support the Food Pantry with yearly tax preparation.



Shawn Zimmerman – Brenda Bell Volunteer of the Year Award 2014

Shawn is one of those people who takes any job seriously and goes overboard to get it done correctly. She works hard at assisting any person/family who needs extra help. She answers questions and needs even before they are asked. Shawn helps to unload the truck deliveries, pack up the Valentine commodities and assists with the Saturday distributions. Shawn and her smiling face are there when ever needed.
