“I’ve been with ACAN since the start of the food pantry. I enjoy helping people. I care about our local seniors and still deliver food to them personally.”
“Over 15 years ago I started volunteering by helping my late wife, Janet Pack, as this was her passion to help serve people and give them healthy choices when it came to getting food. I enjoyed helping my wife, and still today after her passing, I enjoy being part of ACAN and keeping her passion alive by serving the needs of others.
