My partner, Karen Kircher and I, Louise Titlow, have been Diaper Pantry volunteers for a year and a half primarily receiving the deliveries every other week on Tuesdays. Sometimes our shift overlaps with some of the Food Pantry volunteers who bag non perishable food items. At first, the food bagging team and our diaper delivery team tried to work in our overlapping cramped spaces, but there wasn’t enough room and we kept bumping into each other. We made a compromise, and we now help them bag food and they help us carry and stack boxes. I said how grateful I was for Sue Marberry’s help one day and she said “This is what we do, we help each other.” We are creating community while working shoulder to shoulder together, and getting to know each other better. Karen and I have been monthly Sustaining Donors of the Pantry for a few years, and we feel our donation is very well spent, supporting one of our community’s most important programs.
