VANtage: February 2019

Written by nlyons29 on . Posted in Home Page


What a wild ride this year has been already! Polar vortex, school cancellations, snownadoes! Even with the weather stacked against us, our intrepid volunteers continued to brave the path to our doors so that others would be fed. It’s hard to stay frustrated or irritated with life’s little inconveniences when you are surrounded by such generosity. So as our forecast continues to have its identity crisis, I’ll remember to stay humble and stay grateful. Have you had any wild weather volunteer stories this year? Please share!
