Congratulations to Sarah Fong, our August Volunteer of the Month!

Sarah Fong, a morning food pantry volunteer since April 2016, was nominated by her fellow Friday volunteers for going above and beyond assisting our Chinese-speaking clients.

Volunteers Jean and Len had this to say about Sarah:

“As with all volunteer groups, there is always one who stands out demonstrating kindness, generosity, humor and a strong willingness to help others. This is Sarah Fong.

Her unselfish attitude is most evident when the Chinese clients of Interfaith, who don’t speak fluent English, come in to be helped.  All of the Friday crew rely on Sarah.   While we’re happy to fill the clients’ orders,  Sarah is the one who tells us what they want and don’t want.  On Friday morning, it’s not unusual to hear ‘Sarah,  I need your help.’  She will stop whatever she’s doing to help us and, most important, the Chinese clients of Interfaith.  She’s very good at juggling us!

Sarah’s unselfish contribution, along with the appreciation of the Chinese clients she helps, makes Sarah an outstanding Interfaith volunteer.  Simply put, Sarah is a joy to work with.”
