Volunteers of the Week
10/03/2018 - Paige and Garrett Smith - $149 Couples MembersThrough Food on Foot, we are giving back to our community and seeing the smiling faces and all of the progress of those we are fortunate to help. Our family feels lucky to be involved in this way.
What we like most about Food on Foot is playing a small part in all the lives we help change for the better and for the rewarding time we spend in the process.
While volunteering, It filled me up to feel that I could personally help give someone a second chance at their life. The Food on Foot staff, gray and green shirts are all so inclusive and accepting. Each of our young daughters walked away from the Sunday serving with a new positive experience on what it feels like to help another person ...and they had fun! We look forward to coming back again and again.
08/27/2018 - Oppenheim Group SponsorshipWe would like to give a HUGE thanks to the Oppenheim Group for sponsoring our August 27th Sunday Serving and for their big-hearted sponsorship donation of $20,000. Not only did they distribute food to 180 homeless and low income individuals, but their amazing sponsorship gift will go towards helping more homeless people earn their way off the streets with full-time jobs and housing.
07/30/2018 - Natasha Mullan - $98 Club memberFood on Foot’s cause is very close to my heart because they help the homeless in the long-run by rebuilding lives. Although I regularly give food to the homeless, I wanted to provide something more than just a temporary solution. I began looking towards helping to rehabilitate individuals who are seeking a support system and guidance towards a second chance. All it takes is an unfortunate incident or circumstance to end up in such a difficult situation, and the least we can do as outsiders is to provide hope and aid for those in need.
The thing I love most about Food on Foot is that not only does it provide meals to those in need on a weekly basis, but they also provide a careful step-by-step rehabilitation program with guidance and goals towards reconstructing a new life. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to create second chances and rebuild the confidence and hope of those who feel they have lost everything.
Nothing gives me more joy and perspective on life when seeing the smiles, kindness and sincere gratitude from those in need, not to mention the pleasure derived from recognizing familiar faces and witnessing their individual hard work, accomplishments and progress.
