Every day at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS), I get to witness the greatest things about being human, seeing people who are giving, caring, empathetic, compassionate, and hopeful.
In the daily span of doing my job I'm blessed with seeing the most wonderful
acts of kindness. SFBFS volunteers are truly amazing! Day in and day out we have
a constant rotation of volunteers helping to do everything
from sorting and bagging canned items, dry goods, fresh produce, meat and dairy, as well as helping with the set up and handing out of these goods at food
distributions. The faces I see are all ethnicities, all ages, all incomes. They're all working hard together, all smiling with purpose and moving toward one goal: helping others.
I encourage you to come to a volunteer orientation and see the great changes
SFBFS is continuing to strive for. See if there is an opportunity for you or
someone you know to give back to our community and help those in need become
more self sufficient. Take a step towards greatness.
"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to
have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb
agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by
love." - Martin Luther King Jr.
