Volunteering at the Collierville Food Pantry

Volunteers (l-r) Ruby Mears, Jim Barkley, Pam Aquadro
I have been volunteering at the Collierville Food Pantry for three years.  I am humbled every time I volunteer.  It is so hard to imagine not having enough food to feed your family.  Just seeing the gratitude of the clients that come in make my time there so worthwhile.  By helping the Collierville Food Pantry stock shelves so that bags of food can be given to those who need it, is so rewarding.  You leave there with a warm fuzzy feeling and look forward to returning.

An added bonus is the fellowship and comradery you get to experience with your brothers and sisters in Christ.  It helps to further grow personal relationships with fellow church members outside the church walls.  I would highly encourage anyone who has two free hours a week to volunteer and witness for themselves the great work that is being done at the Collierville Food Pantry. What do you have to lose?
