The Won't Let Me Work, So I Volunteer

If you visit our Everett Food Bank, there's a good chance you'll talk to Nels.

"I ask them if they want meat, dairy, or dog or cat food. I love helping other people."

Nels first came to our Food Bank as a recipient. A heart attack sidelined him in 1998, and he's had two strokes since then. "They won't let me work, so I volunteer." For the past three years, Nels has volunteered four days a week. He knows how important our Food Bank is, because of those times when he was on the other side of the table.

Thanks Nels! We appreciate you.
