We had 160 different volunteers help us out during 2020 with 11,774 hours put in and we had to pick just one volunteer out of all of that. Congratulations to Dominique Wildeboer for stepping up during this year of the pandemic. Dominique has been helping us out for approx. 4.5 years and she volunteered approx 1,000 hours logged to date herself. Robin asks her how did we get so lucky? “I started volunteering after retiring from teaching. I had some experience in the grocery store industry growing up and thought the food bank would make a nice fit. After 4.5 years here I still love it mostly because of the wonderful people I volunteer with.” says Dominique. She goes above and beyond often times shopping for special requests for our clients. We truly are lucky to have her with us and she’s an inspiration to everyone.
