Volunteer Cheer ~ Helping fill those plates

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Roxanne Ford, Senior VP of Business Development with Austin Title Company, made it her mission in 2017 to support our Central Texas Food Bank all through the year by generating a large group of volunteers each month. Austin Title Company is an Austin PT50 sponsor and this idea fit perfectly with their passion for giving back to the community we serve.

It’s been so much fun working in the Food Bank Warehouse assembling soooo many boxes of meals for many in need of food. Roxanne’s slogan “Austin Fights Hunger” brought so many together in our industry working side by side making a difference for others. In addition we all had fun and got to develop some new relationships! I’ve found fighting hunger in Austin starts at the Central Texas Food Bank!

I was honored to be one of the three recipients this year at the Platinum Top 50 awards ceremony  receiving an award for my participation in 2017 with Austin Title for help serving 83,666 meals for the Central Texas Food Bank!

Wednesday December 20, 2017 we culminated the year of giving back by volunteering at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center for the Mobil Food Pantry . We helped hand out food to so many grateful people! Nourishing hungry people by fighting against hunger is something I'm excited to be a part of one meal at a time. My daughter Melissa and granddaughter Hailey volunteered too....You have to love our Santa hats!

Thank you Roxanne for giving us the opportunity to help give back this holiday season. It made a big difference for me and I’ll be back next year to continue supporting fighting hunger in Austin. There is no greater feeling than helping others; giving feels good!

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values. Merry Christmas!”        Thomas Monson

Kudos to you, your daughter, granddaughter and Roxanne for a year of giving to the less fortunate in Austin. Those of us who have so much can only imagine what not having enough to eat is like. 

Happy Holidays, Dorie Dillard

Congratulations to you and your family, and Roxanne too for your big hearts.  It is what makes a community special.  We are going to be buying lots of orchids tomorrow to support Westerlay's generous offer of giving all 100% of the proceeds from their sales for the next 3 days to the Food Share of Ventura County.  That is where the fire hit hardest and is still active, in unihabitated terrain.  A

Morning Dorie.

When I was a Deputy Sheriff in Bowie County Texas we would go and hand out boxes filled with food to those in our area who was in need.  It was a great time seeing those faces light up.

I love hearing about places like this, there is no reason that anyone should have to go hungry, with the abundance of food that exists.
