Volunteer Spotlight: Elkie and Hermann

If you've been around the Ada Jenkins Food Pantry, we bet you've seen Elkie and Hermann. The two have been pantry volunteers since 2009 and set the standards for Ada volunteers very high. Weekly, they lead the stocking and organizing team to ensure the food pantry is ready for client-partners to shop for groceries. This involves activities such as: unloading trucks, sorting community donations, ensuring food safety protocol, and assisting with volunteer food drive events throughout the year.

This year, Hermann and Elkie were given the annual Pantry Service Award, for those with outstanding service to the community and tremendous assistance to the Ada Jenkins Pantry. Together, Elke and Hermann have served over 475 volunteer hours in the past year. These two honorable individuals have made a positive impact on the issue of hunger in our community.
