Lending A Helping Hand to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank

September 13th, 2021

“Sense of community is a feeling that members have of belonging, a feeling that members matter to one another and to the group, and a shared faith that members’ needs will be met through their commitment to be together.” ― David McMillan.
On August 26, 2021, Cleveland Job Corps Center Outreach and Admissions Manager Diava Carter, Business Community Liaison Melonie Harrell, Admissions Counselor David Moore, and Safety, Security and Transportation Manager David Wynne lent helping hands to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
The Cleveland Job Corps team joined other local volunteers with loading boxes filled with fresh produce, poultry, and non-perishable food in more than 200 vehicles. The high-spirited group offered their services from 11 am – 4 pm in eighty-four-degree heat. “Not even the hot summer sun could keep me from beaming from all the thankful people I encountered today,” said David Moore. “It was so fulfilling to help.”
Since the start of the pandemic in mid-March 2020, the Food Bank has served more than 375,000 people through early December 2020. One-third of those clients were seeking emergency food assistance for the first time ever (https://www.greaterclevelandfoodbank.org/).
