Ann retired from the Snohomish School District after a rewarding 18-year career as a Retirement Specialist. She also served on the Public School Employees Board for 10 years. It was the annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive that led to volunteering at the Snohomish Community Food Bank.
When asked why she volunteers, Ann explained,
“It is the commitment to serve those in need of our service including the homebound and homeless by providing nutritious food.
It is the volunteer’s commitment to serve our clients and community with joy and respect.
Even when the world may seem overwhelming at times to our clients, the Snohomish Community Food Bank remains a safe place to receive much needed food as well as a sense of community, warmth and caring.
I am happy and proud to be a member and a Board Member of the Snohomish Community Food Bank.
We make a difference!”
