quotes

Sarah Norman from Saint George

"I worked for an organization that ran a food bank as a side program. Honestly, I didn’t even know our town had a food bank! Being there often, I saw small things that I knew I could “fix”, and make things better for those who needed the service. Before I knew it, our food bank had grown twice its size in both space and numbers!"
