Volunteer Spotlight: Andie Seaman
We would like to recognize Andie Seaman for at her service in the food pantry since its opening, which is an astounding 11 years.
Without dedicated volunteers like Andie, ACO would not be able to effectively serve families in need in our community. Our volunteers provide the manpower we need to reach our mission of preventing hunger and homelessness.
We asked Andie to answer a few questions about her service to ACO:
What do you like about volunteering at ACO?
Volunteering for ACO gives me a purpose in this life, to serve others, that are down on their luck.
What’s one thing other volunteers might not know about you?
I have been out shopping and seen former clients. They will stop me and tell me how big their kids have gotten or that they found work. How wonderful is that news!
How does committing your time each week to serving others make you feel?
It makes me feel like I have made a difference in someone’s life and that’s an awesome feeling! Although it’s a little different now, because of the pandemic, we are fulfilling an important need.
“Act as if what you do makes a difference… it does.”
