How long have you been participating with Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference?

I have been working alongside Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference for about a year now.


Why did you join Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference?

I am a Nutrition Educator/Health Educator with El Dorado County Public Health and a colleague of mine informed me Hands4Hope- Youth Making A Difference was going to be opening an Emergency Food Pantry in Placerville and she suggested I get involved. I reached out and am honored to be part of this project today.


What outreaches do you usually volunteer with? Which do you enjoy the most?

I have only had the opportunity to be involved in the Emergency Food Pantry. As a Public Health employee during a pandemic, I've just not had the free time I'd like to to be involved in other projects.


What is your impression/experience with Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference youth?

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference and have met a few folks I can truly call a "friend"!


Overall, what has your experience been like since joining? Since joining Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference?

My experience has been very rewarding and enriching. I look forward to our meetings, our food distributions and hanging out with "the team", catching up and talking to the youth - all of it, I love it!! Thanks so much for having me.
