2017 Volunteers of the Month

vom-jan-2017January 2017– Daniel Sandberg

Daniel has volunteered with the Food and Care Coalition since 2011.  He was introduced to Food and Care through Jack and Janet Mahoney.  Daniel volunteers his time by helping make and donate sack lunches, cooking lunch on Sundays, and driving food deliveries.  He says that his most memorable experiences at Food and Care have been the opportunities that he has taken to get to know the individuals who come for help.  Daniel’s favorite quote is “Think globally. Act locally. Panic cosmically.”

February 2017– Anne Parkes Armistead

Anne has shared her rich, soul stirring vocals and guitar music with the dinner guests at the Food and Care Coalition for a little over a year. After playing a song Anne wrote about her struggle with addiction, a gentlemen from the dinner guests left her a hand written note on a napkin. He wrote, “Thank you for sharing your song, it is something I can relate to and made me feel understood.” Anne stated it made her very happy to know something she had written touched someone else’s’ heart. In Anne’s spare time she studies Social Work at UVU. Anne’s favorite quote is “Everyone you know is fighting a battle you know nothing about, be kind always.”
