Volunteers help run the Harry Chapin Food Bank

FORT MYERS

There are two things that keep the Harry Chapin Food Bank running smoothly: its cash and its volunteers.

At least that’s what volunteer Fritz Gloege said.

All volunteers like Gloege help sort and organize food for those in need in the community.

Drivers like Ken Johnson will help you make it happen.

“A lady was late,” Johnson said. “The other driver brought her a bouquet of flowers. And while I was removing her information, I looked up and she had tears on both sides of her face. She said, “You have no idea how much I need this today.”

Everyone can make a difference, says Gloege.

The difference volunteers make adds up to $2.2 million from food bank donation services in 2021.

Individually and together, volunteers make an impact in a vast repository of carefully cataloged and archived philanthropy.

One volunteer said: “It really makes me feel good about my work.

WINK News is asking the community to donate what they can to the Harry Chapin Food Bank every March in the amount of Million Meals.
