Volunteer Spotlight of the Month: Kathy Grovum
For Second Harvest Heartland volunteer Kathy Grovum, volunteering means helping those who are in need get the help they deserve. Kathy has been volunteering with Second Harvest Heartland for nine months as a Supplemental Food Assistance Program (SNAP) and Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) volunteer.
“I enjoy knowing that I am helping clients get the help they deserve,” said Kathy. “I like the fact that we have other resources to offer clients as well. The process of looking for help can be overwhelming for people and the help that Second Harvest Heartland offers makes a difference. It is a good feeling at the end of a shift that I have made a difference.”
Kathy says that she and the other SNAP volunteers work with clients in the community to help those who are eligible apply for benefits.
“The specialists really care about their clients and the follow-up calls I make as a volunteer is an important link between navigating the application process,” said Kathy.
Thank you for your dedication to helping our hungry neighbors, Kathy!
