December's Volunteer of the Month: Corey

It is an honor to recognize Corey Hollowell as our Volunteer of the Month for December. Corey has been volunteering with The Food Bank of Yolo County (FBYC) as a lead volunteer for the Holiday Basket Giveaways since October. On average he donates 24 hours per week and has helped register almost 3,000 clients for the Holiday Basket Giveaways.
Corey is a part of the Lutheran Episcopal Volunteer Network (LEVN), which provides him the opportunity to give one year of service through work with nonprofits in Yolo County and the greater Sacramento area. This program is perfect for Corey because he has always had a passion for helping others and improving the community. LEVN helped connect Corey with Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network (YIIN) and they have been so kind to share Corey’s time and talents with us.
Corey is a delight to have in the office and he knows how to make anyone smile. He has become a part of the FBYC family and truly is someone we can rely on. Not only is he dependable and goes above and beyond, but he takes the initiative to increase efficiency with his work. Above all, he has one of the most positive attitudes around.
Corey’s favorite part of volunteering is meeting his fellow Good Samaritans and hearing the stories of the clients he is serving. When not working to better the community, Corey likes riding bikes, hiking and long walks on the beach.
Corey, you are a true star and we appreciate all your help!
