For the Month of February, it is with great pleasure we recognize Esequiel “Zeke” Montoya as ourVolunteer of the Month. Zeke has been volunteering with the Food Bank of Yolo County (FBYC) since October and has volunteered 100.5 hours.
Zeke became involved with FBYC when he dropped by the office one day for some information. Since that day he has worked with our various programs and even served as a lead for our Holiday Basket Giveaways. For the holiday season, which is one of the busiest times around FBYC, Zeke went above and beyond. If we ever needed extra help or found ourselves in a bind, Zeke made himself readily available. We always knew we could depend on Zeke and the high degree of service he provided to our clients. He is very friendly, relatable and truly goes the extra mile with everything he does.
Since the holiday season has ended Zeke still commits time every week to come in and help. We are looking forward to him serving as a lead for a hunger study we are conducting in Yolo County this spring. Zeke is an excellent candidate for the hunger study as he is very community orientated and volunteersbecause he wants to make a difference in his community. Volunteering to him is about being selfless and helping the next person.
In addition to be being a good samaritan Zeke is also a family man who spends his time helping at his kid’s schools and assisting with his son’s baseball team. He is also the reigning “Monopoly Champion” offamily game night. When not winning at Monopoly Zeke enjoys golfing with friends and fishing.
Thank You for all of your hard work, Zeke!
