Cast-A-Light
Volunteers, the heart of the Food Bank
by - Story: 85071


Kim is at the Kelowna Food Bank twice a week, on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.  He has worked for us a long time and he's always busy with a smile and a friendly word for everyone. 

He came to us seven years ago, a client of TIER Support Services.  TIER provides support and employment programs for people with development disabilities.  Together, we help people overcome employment barriers.  Kim lives with his family in Kelowna, a short bus ride from the Food Bank.  For him, working here is no different than having a job.

Kim works independently, sweeping, mopping and cleaning kitchen counters.  He enjoys the routine, knows what to do and how to do it well.  We never have to check his work.   Kim is an important member of our volunteer family.  He is one of over 100 individuals who participate in our Care to Share Volunteer Program, helping with our daily operations.  We could not do the work we do without dedicated people like Kim.

He has never missed a shift in seven years.  Last May, Kim received the “Volunteer of the Month” award for his hard work and service.  We are all very proud of his achievement. 

Please help us help people like Kim.  Your donation sustains our volunteer program giving people the opportunity to contribute and to prove themselves.
