Anita has been volunteering at Parker Food Bank for over 5 years and was nominated by food bank staff member Maria Sanchez to highlight her great work. In her role as greeter and client intake volunteer, Maria describes Anita as a dedicated volunteer that can be characterized by 3 H’s- humble, happy, and honest. Anita began volunteering at the food bank to be able to reciprocate the help she received when she fell on hard times and sought assistance from others. She understands the importance of being reliable and honoring your word in day to day operations and uses this as her motivation to volunteer weekly.
When she’s not spending her time at the Parker Food Bank, Anita can be found volunteering at the locale senior center. Anita’s favorite thing about volunteering is being able to spread her positivity to help turn a client’s mood around all while providing a necessity they may not have otherwise received. We would like to thank Anita and the Parker Food Bank for all they do to help the community!
