Volunteer Spotlight: John Bettinger

We would like to recognize John Bettinger for at his service in the food pantry for well over 5 years.

Without dedicated volunteers like John, 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 John to answer a few questions about his service to ACO:

What do you like about volunteering at ACO?

During this challenging time of Covid, I’ve seen the number of families we serve grow exponentially. It’s really amazing how the ACO admin, staff and volunteers have pulled together to reach new heights and help so many through this difficult time. I’m proud to be part of this great team.

What’s one thing other volunteers might not know about you?

Other volunteers might not know that I lived 11 years in Mexico doing social work helping poor families living by the railroad tracks and 3 needy orphanages.

How does committing your time each week to serving others make you feel?

I always look forward to volunteering 2 days a week at ACO.   I feel like I’m a member of a wonderful team of friends all working in unity to make a difference here in North Texas.
