Pro Tip of the Month: Reap the Rewards

This month’s tip comes courtesy of Michelle Reyes, the donor & volunteer relations manager of Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center.

Volunteering not only aids those in need but also offers numerous advantages to volunteers. Among the various benefits of volunteering, I believe the top three are:

  • Personal Fulfillment: Volunteering provides a profound sense of personal satisfaction. It’s a chance to contribute to a cause you care about deeply and witness the real impact you make on the lives of others.
  • Skill Development: When you volunteer, you can acquire new skills that are valuable both in your personal life and professional career.
  • Social Connections: You’ll meet individuals who share your interests and values, often
    leading to professional relationships and enduring friendships.

Giving some of your time and energy can lead to a heartwarming journey of personal growth, connection and fulfillment. You’ll be astounded at the rewards you’ll reap when you help those in need within our community.

Founded in 1988, the Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides food for neighbors experiencing food insecurity as well as resources and guidance. For more behind this Frontdoor, visit
