We love our volunteers! We are so thankful for their selfless service. Without them we wouldn’t be able to accomplish nearly as much or have as great of an impact.

Elmer Bales has been a regular volunteer at our warehouse for about 5 years. He has been a nurse with St. Elizabeth Healthcare for the last 28 years, but still finds time to give back to others.

When asked why he volunteers at GO Pantry, Elmer said, “Feeding children in need is a great way to serve others. Jesus tells us to help others and what better way than this. I had no idea there were so many children in our area suffering from food insecurity. What go pantry does is a vital service for our community.”

He enjoys his time at GO Pantry in part because “The atmosphere is very light and relaxed, everyone has a good time for a great cause.” Thanks, Elmer! We enjoy having you, too! Many thanks for all of the time you have spent helping GO Pantry.
