Volunteers of the Month: Lamar and Sal

From left: Sal, Lamar
This month, we decided to highlight two awesome volunteers who came to us through Cache Creek Lodge, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in Woodland. Though they are not required to perform community service in order to remain in the program, both Lamar and Sal come as often as they can and have been tremendously helpful as warehouse volunteers.

Both Lamar and Sal were nominated by Roger, our Warehouse Manager, for their exceptional help. They are both extremely hard working, ready and willing to tackle volunteer assignments, have great attitudes, and are very courteous to those around them. Roger has only great things to say about both Lamar and Sal, who have given us over 30 hours of volunteer time each.

Lamar, who is originally from Sacramento, loves to play basketball and keep himself busy. When asked why he decided to volunteer at the Food Bank, he told us it’s because he likes to be productive and enjoys helping others. Though he was very shy at first, he impressed Roger with his “take charge” attitude and has been a pleasure to get to know.

Sal, who is the more outgoing of the two, is from West Sacramento. He also likes to give back to our community by volunteering at the Food Bank. He enjoys the work environment and knowing that at the end of a shift he has done something to help another person out. Sal enjoys all types of art, drawing, and tattooing. Very polite and friendly, Sal has also been a great addition to our volunteer team.

Thank you Lamar and Sal, from Roger and everyone at the Food Bank of Yolo County!
