As an elementary school teacher, Annette Cavanaugh saw first-hand the impact the BackSnack program could have in a child’s life; today, she helps make that very program an ongoing resource for children throughout our communities.

After retirement, Annette began volunteering at Harvesters, helping in several capacities, including packing for the BackSnack program, working in Harvesters’ warehouse, at Mobile Pantries and even at special events.

“The impact Harvesters has on the community is significant to me,” she says, noting that through her volunteer efforts, “I feel like I’m making an impact.”

Annette supervises student teachers on a part-time basis now, so she’s thankful that she can easily fit volunteer time with Harvesters into her schedule.

“Harvesters is so kind and thankful for every volunteer,” she says. “It’s a great place to spend a couple of hours.”

Annette encourages more people to give their time, if possible.

“If you are looking for a volunteer activity, consider Harvesters,” she urges. “One’s time can better our community.”

Thank you, Annette, for giving your time to help create a healthier, more vibrant community for us all.
