Annie Hassel is an amazingly dedicated and dependable volunteer. Each Thursday morning for the past four years, Annie has visited the local food bank where she picks up enough food for 12-15 families in STAND’s Kinship program, which provides assistance to relatives who are caring for children who cannot stay with their parents.
After the pick-up, she returns to our site in Antioch where she thoughtfully sorts the items so that each family has a plentiful box to take home. When she can, Annie will throw in an extra pair of socks or special snacks for the children.
As a caregiver in STAND!’s Kinship program, she felt that she has received so much support when she took in her two grandchildren and felt it was time to give back. We are very thankful for loyal volunteers like Annie who help us provide essential resources for our families!
