19 Impact100 members made their way north to the Santa Rosa headquarters of the Redwood Empire Food Bank on December 19 to volunteer in the organization’s vast, organized and efficient warehouse headquarters.
After the Impact100 crew took a tour of the busy facility - in which a steady stream of 8,000 volunteers do work that would take 45 full-time staff to accomplish, they were put to work.
Given the appropriate tools, equipment and supplies, the team quickly fell into place and developed a rhythm like the best of any production line.
So, what did the members accomplish? Like the dedicated, organized women leaders they are, and while smiling all the way, they taped together and labeled over 500 boxes, filled each of them with 11 pounds of canned food staples, sealed the boxes up, and loaded them onto pallets - enough to provide over 12,000 meals for food-deprived seniors to enjoy during the holidays.
Now that’s a good day’s work! Thanks to all the volunteers, including Sandee Crisp who organized the outing.
