It is National Volunteer Week. We would like to take the time to thank the over 700 volunteers, churches, sponsors, donors, organizations, companies, and individuals that join together to help the Beach Food Pantry serve an average of 4,100 Dare County residents annually!
It truly takes a community effort and we are so very grateful each and every day for our volunteers who are so vital to our mission of feeding the hungry in our community.
A letter from our Board President Lorna Ernst follows:
It is National Volunteer Week and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all that you do for the Beach Food Pantry and elsewhere in the community.
I read a quote attributed to Joyce Flaugher that read, “I always wondered why somebody didn’t do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.” It doesn’t take any special skills, degrees, or credentials to help others, it just takes heart.
Not only does volunteering help others but we meet and become friends with others in the community that we may never have met. We learn new skills and move outside of our comfort zones. And volunteering leads to better health!
I appreciate what each and every one of you contributes as do the neighbors that we serve. Thank you for your time, your ideas, your enthusiasm, and sharing your skills and talents with our organization. It certainly is true that many hands make light work!
Please support the College of the Albemarle’s Nursing Class of 2015 in their fundraiser for the Beach Food Pantry.
They are holding a car wash at Southern Bank in Kill Devil Hills on Saturday, April 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. So come on out and get some of that green pollen washed off your car!!!
All proceeds will benefit the Beach Food Pantry Capital Campaign and Building Fund.
The Beach Food Pantry will be closed on Friday, April 3, 2015 in observance of the Good Friday Holiday. The Pantry will reopen Monday, April 6, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.
