Feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness; thankful
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, this time of year prompts many to take a moment and reflect on what they are grateful for. The Harvest Market team here at the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank has many things to be thankful for with one of the biggest being our volunteers. Volunteers are at the heart of this program and organization as a whole. They are integral to insuring a successful market day and we couldn’t do it without them. Over the last year we have been incredibly fortunate to work alongside amazing individuals, each of whom has helped us further our mission of filling bellies, and feeding souls. Today, we are spotlighting one of our great volunteer partnerships to whom we are ever so grateful.
Volunteer spotlight: Montpelier High School (Williams County)
For the last year, students involved in National Honor Society, Student Council, and government classes have come out and volunteered at our Harvest Markets in Williams County. Activities range from setting up and tearing down the market, pulling orders off the truck, being a shopping assistant, or checking in our shoppers on our PantryTrak system.
During this time:
- Students have contributed to over 130 service hours at our markets
- With more than 30 different students volunteering
Each and every student has been such a joy to work with and phenomenal in assisting us with all aspects of our market day. So a BIG shout-out to our volunteers at Montpelier High School. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
