Mission Moment: Why I Volunteer

VISTE volunteers decorating cakes

My grandmother raised me while she lived on a small, fixed income. I remember standing in lines with her when I was young – picking up our commodities or visiting local churches to receive supplemental groceries.

I know personally how much this extra help, and things like love sent via a birthday cake, mean to anyone, especially the elderly. My grandma is no longer here with us, but every single smile I see on your clients’ faces is hers smiling back at me. It is an honor and a gift to be able to help VISTE serve our community. As long as there is a breath in me, I will do what I can to see that smile. Thank you for all you do. It matters!

I treasure everything I do for VISTE.
