Feeding South Dakota Operations Manager retires after 27 years
I have had the privileged of working for Feeding South Dakota for 27 years. Today is my last day of working, so I asked if I could come down here and help with the Faith Temple give-away.
I'm down here because we had partnered several years ago with Faith Temple, what has happened is Jeff has taken the donations from the food bank and done wonderful things with them. He is feeding 500 to 600 people here today.
I have worked for Feeding South Dakota for 27 years, my first job with that organization was at the food pantry, which is downtown. Then I was working at the food bank which is a program of Feeding South Dakota.
When we met Kay she encouraged us to do the food giveaway and the rest is history, but we look to her as the person who got us started.
How many people get to work in a position where they get to help people and sometimes significantly help a lot of people.
God bless her we are hoping she enjoys her retirement but I just believe that she was called by god to help people that are struggling. I would not be surprised to see her back volunteering and helping people against the struggling economy.
I was home today and my cats were awfully happy to see me home, I just have some other things I need to pay attention to and I will do that, and it will be nice to be able to do some of those things.
