Volunteers of the month:
Bob and Katherine jeffries
Meet our volunteers of the month, Bob and Katherine Jeffries! Katherine Jeffries has been volunteering at Community Outreach Ministries off and on for the past four years, but two years ago convinced her husband Bob Jeffries to come with her. They have been volunteering together faithfully for the past two years now.
The Jeffries volunteer in COM's food pantry and are the ones who sort most of the USDA/TEFAP commodities and restock the USDA shelves. The pantry could not operate nearly as smoothly as it does without their diligent and faithful efforts.
Outside of volunteering at COM, Bob and Katherine enjoy spending time with family, traveling, reading, fishing, and getting involved in other ministries like their church. When asked how volunteering at COM has affected their everyday lives, the answer was "yes!". The Jeffries admit that volunteering is a sacrifice. To get to COM (they volunteer three times a week), it takes almost an hour to get there and back. But they say that it's worth it to know they are helping bring hope to those who come through the pantry.
Thank you Bob & Katherine!
