Babs is an awesome volunteer who helps keep the pantry in order! She offers great suggestions and takes initiative to get tasks done during, and outside of daily food service. Babs brings jokes and lightheartedness to the pantry. Her volunteer shifts are spent on Sort and Stock, Retail Recovery program, and supporting pantry needs. The staff appreciates Babs being part of CORA.







At this point, Cathy Smith is a professional Choice Assistant. She has been working the Choice table weekly for the past 9 months! She connects genuinely with the families we serve and has built rapport with many of them too. Cathy has become a great leader to new volunteers working the Choice table and is someone you can lean on when food distribution gets really busy. We appreciate the time, energy, and care that she offers CORA each week.







Jamie hit her one-year mark as a dedicated CORA volunteer early in March 2023. Jamie floats around pantry roles helping out with packing CORA bags, sorting & stocking, as well as the choice table. She has been practicing her Spanish skills to better communicate with families we serve at the choice table. Jamie has also helped out by assisting new volunteers on their first day, staying past her shift time to help others, and keeping an upbeat attitude while being here. Thanks a bunch for being part of the CORA crew!






Jeff started his volunteer work with CORA in mid-September. So far, he has completed over 120 volunteer hours and has been a real help in transitioning CORA into the new building. Jeff is always very kind, patient, and helpful during his shifts and understands that providing food to those in need in our community makes a big difference.
