Volunteer Spotlight: Jacqueline Hildebrand
We would like to recognize Jacqueline Hildebrand. Jacqueline has volunteered at the ACO Food Pantry twice a week for over 5 years. That’s an estimated 2,080 hours!
Without dedicated volunteers like Jacqueline, ACO would not be able to effectively serve our community. Our volunteers provide the manpower we need to reach our mission of preventing hunger and homelessness in our community.
We asked Jacqueline to answer a few questions about her service to ACO:
What do you like about volunteering at ACO?
I enjoy volunteering with a group of dedicated and hardworking people that are trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors who are going through a difficult time
What’s one thing other volunteers might not know about you?
I am a first generation American. My parents moved to the US from Germany a few years before I was born. I speak German as well as English.
How does committing your time each week to serving other make you feel?
I get a great sense of satisfaction that I am making a difference in my community and supporting a cause that I care about. The extra bonus is all the new friends that I have made!
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, They have the heart.”
