I’m thrilled to write this letter of thanks after an amazing
3-month sabbatical. Thank you to the Board and incredible ladies I work with, who covered for me and made it possible for me to take this important time off. Hats off especially to Naomi Spence, Associate Director, for taking the reigns, not shirking from responsibility, and handling things with ease during my absence. Thank you also to the community members and volunteers who stepped up this summer, assisting with our volunteer needs for our growing summer programs.
The Hunger Coalition is so much more than just a food bank and WOULD NOT exist without the support of our volunteers, partners and donors. Period.
Thank you for caring about ALL the people in our valley–it’s what makes us a community!
