Among The Young At HeartMarch 28, 2016
When compelled to help someone there is a keen intuition that takes place. Here at Harvest Hope Food Bank, our volunteers follow that feeling and strive to help others who are battling hunger on a daily basis. One such volunteer is Jestine Myers. Jestine volunteers in one our Emergency Food Pantries at Harvest Hope Food Bank. She is a very young 92 years of age and has enjoyed volunteering for the last 15 years. The choir at her church recently recognized her with a “Helping the Hungry” award. When asked what made her start volunteering in 2000, she said she had a close neighbor whose family was struggling with hunger at the time. She came to Harvest Hope to get them help and started volunteering ever since.
