Volunteer Spotlight – Jack and Dave

October 26, 2017

jack 1Jack and Dave started volunteering with NTFB in February of 2014 after the church Jack attended came for a volunteer shift. Soon, the brothers began volunteering 1-3 times a week! Although they have moved farther away and it is harder for them to come as often, they still make the effort to come at least once a week to help.

Over the years, Jack has had a series of strokes, which made it difficult to perform normal, every-day tasks or do anything physical. But wanting to continue to volunteer, Dave began picking up his brother every week so they could continue their work together at the Distribution Center.

Dave SMDave said that volunteering helps them stay physical.  The work they do at the Food Bank has helped Jack remain able to work and move his body in ways he might not have been able to after his strokes.

“I couldn’t do any of this stuff before I started coming here, and now I can do all of it,” Jack said. “It really helps me a lot and I love it.”

The two said one of their favorite parts about volunteering is the people they get to meet and see every time they come to sort food. They also enjoy getting to see the passion in all of the kids who give their time to help fight hunger.

We are so grateful for volunteers like Jack and Dave who help give NTFB the friendly, passionate atmosphere we strive to have. Their work has helped put countless meals on the table for those in need in our community!

If you see them at the Distribution Center, make sure you tell them hello!
