Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Rick

Rick has been a CFBNJ financial donor for years, but when he retired from 44 years practicing law, he came in as a volunteer to see how he could help in person.

“There are so many people who have real needs,” Rick said, “and volunteering is a way of having a direct impact for people.”

Rick has stepped in to help with every stage of our operations, from sorting food to preparing meals to assisting with distributions. He now comes to the FoodBank at least one morning per week and has also joined our new Care Crew warehouse ambassador team, going the extra mile to guide other volunteers and take on more responsibilities.

My philanthropic efforts focus on real-life impact, like health, and human rights,” he tells us.CFBNJ deals with all – health and family safety, welfare, and togetherness.”
