Volunteers are the Heart of Church Community Services
Our food pantry relies heavily on the support of volunteers to help us distribute food and make visits from our guests go smoothly. Mary Ellyn and Tom Donnell are two of our dedicated volunteers who help us regularly. When asked recently why they volunteer at the food pantry, they said it is because they know God has blessed their lives and they want to give back. They said volunteering makes them realize how truly blessed they are. Michael Downing, our Food Services Director said, “Mary Ellyn has always been a gracious help on the pantry floor and serves our pantry guests with great sincerity. I watched numerous times as Mary Ellyn would teach the young ladies how to cook the vegetables which they were not familiar with. Tom has always been cordial to those who had difficulty carrying out their groceries and a gentleman to all volunteers.” Thank you Tom and Mary Ellyn!
