Lisa & Joe: “We feel that the few hours we work is a way to give back to the community”

This June, Second Harvest Food Bank is highlighting a husband and wife who have made volunteering at Second Harvest a weekly tradition. So far the couple has donated nearly 440 hours of their time to fight hunger!

你什么时候开始在 Second Harvest 做志愿者的?

Joe: Lisa started in March 2020 and I started in April 2020.  

Lisa: My niece had volunteered here before and when I was retiring, she told me I should come here. Then when everything shut down, I said, I can’t stand sitting at home. So I came and I fell in love with the place. I brought him along and he did too. 

Joe: She’s got a servant’s heart. 

你最喜欢的志愿者机会是什么?

Joe: We both like to do the dry food sort best, but have done food boxes and backpacks too. We enjoy working with the Tuesday/Thursday morning bunch and also come on Fridays and Saturdays occasionally.   

描述一下你最喜欢的志愿者记忆?

Lisa: I just love a lot of the camaraderie and working together. We are always working to reach goals with the regulars and even new people that come in. It keeps us going and keeps it fun. 

Joe: The most fun I had was the day we were here by ourselves. No other volunteers came, but we set a goal for one another and we did 350 backpacks! 

为什么志愿服务对您很重要?

Joe: We feel that the few hours we work is a way to give back to the community especially to those suffering from the pandemic. Giving a monetary gift is important, but contributing our time is just as important. 

Lisa: I feel very blessed. The shutdown didn’t impact us in a big way other than boredom. There are so many people less fortunate than me and if I can give something to help I will. As long as I am physically and mentally able I will.  

关于 Second Harvest,您还有什么想让人们知道的吗?

Lisa: These are great people to work with. They are organized and nice and you build up relationships. Y’all seem to know what you’re doing here. We feel the love. I’ve seen firsthand how you guys have impacted the community. I am a teacher, so I see the backpacks when they come into the schools. I helped with disaster relief after the tornados, and I saw the Second Harvest disaster boxes. You are making a real impact.
