The Fairfield office would like to welcome two new office volunteers: Galila Kitzes from Vacaville, and Leslie Williams of Fairfield. Galila, a busy mom, began volunteering in the warehouse last fall, and is now helping with office projects on Fridays. Leslie started volunteering in early February on Tuesdays and Thursdays when she is not in school.
They assist our Lead Volunteer, Julie Ruttenberg, with CalFresh projects. Until recently, Julie was able to meet the demands of the CalFresh team by herself, but the program has been expanding so it became necessary to recruit additional help. The women assemble CalFresh applications, put stickers on materials, and bundle brochures. These materials are then used by the Food Bank staff members who conduct CalFresh outreach. We are very happy Galila and Leslie have joined the growing team of regular volunteers at the Food Bank’s Solano location.
