I had very little knowledge of St. Joseph Food Program before I came to work here, so when I heard about a job opening at St. Joe’s, I had no idea what to expect. What I found is a great organization with a big heart for helping people. Our board, staff, and volunteers in partnership with community churches, organizations, businesses, foundations and individuals, create what I often refer to as a Big Community Project. Because of the joint efforts of all, we are able to serve our neighbors who need assistance. It brings great joy to me to see the difference that is made in the lives of individuals and families through the service, dedication, and generosity of so many.
From the first time I stepped foot into St. Joe’s, it’s been a mind blowing experience! I had no idea how large this organization really was or how many individuals there were out there that needed help on a daily basis. I have now come to the conclusion that the staff and volunteers here are truly the best of the best! It’s inspiring to see the devotion put forth every day to help make a difference, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
I feel incredibly blessed to be part of an organization that has a direct impact in the lives of our clients. I have seen the distress that hunger can cause, especially with parents needing to feed their children. I know that by helping those in need obtain food, we can alleviate much strain in their lives so that they can focus on other needs, such as healthcare, education and parenthood. I am thrilled to be a part of the St. Joe’s team- serving alongside with volunteers who have been here for five, ten, even twenty years. Their amount of service speaks volumes of their character and the incredibleness of the program.
St. Joe’s is truly an amazing organization. I have volunteered for many organizations in the past and also worked for a non-profit as a college student and I have never seen so much dedication and passion! I am truly grateful to be a part of such a wonderful organization. I am also thankful to know that our volunteers definitely make a difference!
As the Operations Manager I am fortunate enough to work with both our wonderful donors and volunteers who help us in our Mission – as well as – our clients and agencies who benefit from our services. I am both lucky and amazed to be working for such an outstanding organization filled with people who truly care by sharing their time and efforts.
I am continually amazed by the commitment and dedication of our community’s effort to make sure our neighbors’ basic needs are met. The staff here is a talented team of caring professionals, but it’s our tremendous volunteer corps that makes this all possible. I work with individuals, groups, and businesses interested in engaging in our mission. If you’re thinking about volunteering, or wondering what that might look like for you, I encourage you to reach out and discover the possibilities.
I’m inspired and energized by all of our dedicated volunteers who come each day and freely give of their time. I love being part of an organization where people show up because they want to. I am proud of St. Joe’s and love what we do here…I share in the heart-felt mission of our program.
