Kim joined our program at a time of need. We opened a new food pantry and needed someone to take charge and make it work. From collecting, sorting, coordinating, deliveries and just generally being available at a moment’s notice, her work ensures that our kids have food on the table and weekly supplies to fulfill their basic needs and allow them to focus on school, work and bettering themselves.
There isn’t a specific single instance to point to. Rather, she is always available, has a smile, can do attitude, is a leader and doesn’t wait to be asked. She takes ownership of her role as if it were a paid position. 100% Team Player.
