Volunteers are the backbone of Second Harvest Food Bank

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Since the beginning of November, we've been talking about how you can help us feed the Valley's hungry.

Well, on Monday it was our chance to lend a helping hand.

Several 21 WFMJ employees along with several other volunteers spent Monday afternoon at the Second Harvest Food Bank sorting food.

Donations and volunteers make it possible for the food bank to operate and last year alone 17,000 volunteer hours were logged.

"Without volunteers we could not do what we do. We could not feed 14,000 people a week or distribute nine million pounds of food. So, the volunteers in this community make it happen," said Mike Iberis, Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank.

If you or your business would like to volunteer your time, call the Second Harvest Food Bank at 330-792-5522.
