MOST RECENT GREEN BAG DAY IN NAPA
For Many CanDoers, Volunteering is a Family Affair.
Kristen Metson is a Neighborhood Coordinator for our Napa Food Project. Her sister, Ursula, is a Food Donor, and because service to others is clearly a family value, Kristin's middle school daughters came to volunteer at the Food Bank this month. They helped collect over 13,000 pounds of non-perishable food for neighbors in need.
Given that family history, it should be no surprise that when Kristin's sister, Erica, visited from Ohio in October, she joined Kristen during her pickup/drop off. Erica was inspired!
home to Ohio and immediately started working on creating the Cincinnati East Side Neighborhood Food Project. Kristen told us, "Erica does a fair amount of
other volunteering there and her community jumped right in. They gathered over 830 pounds during the first pickup the other day!"
Kristin speaks for many of us when she says, "One thing I love about CanDo's Food Project is that it's a very easy and manageable way to give back without a huge time investment. It feels so nice to have your efforts inspire others to do the same!"
