Nominated by: Lighthouse Food Bank
Barb has been a volunteer at the Lighthouse Food Bank for the last 8 years. Barb is loyal, hardworking, reliable, and up to any task. She is a great person overall! Over the last 8 years, Barb has coordinated our Christmas Hamper program.
Due to Barb’s leadership, this program provided 98 Christmas Hampers to families in need in 2021. She procured all the groceries, managed several other volunteers with packing and sorting and led everyone on distribution day. Distribution day went off without a hitch and all our clients were very impressed and thankful. Barb is also a board member and works monthly to help those in need.
Barb’s volunteerism has directly helped those in need in our community. The Food Banks’s catchment area includes all the Municipality of Chester, as well as the Tancook Islands – so one can see the impact of Barb’s dedication and desire to help others with her time and abilities.
