I volunteered for the annual Back to School Shopping Spree at JCPenney on 8/8/2010. I was paired with an 8 yr old girl named Annie. I had a great time helping her to pick our her outfit for school. She seems to know what she wants and don't want. I love the feeling that I was able to help her and just the smile on her face melts my heart, what a great feeling. I also loved the WVCS staffs, they are all very nice and friendly. I cannot wait to do another Shopping Spree event or other volunteer at this community.
The food pantry at the WVSC in Cupertino is a pleasant place to stock groceries and fresh vegetables for very appreciative clients. I enjoy the home-like atmosphere that has been created for people most in need of food.
West Valley Community Services is a marvelous organization which serves the Hungry and Homeless population of our community with amazing dignity and efficiency. I volunteer at the Front Desk, greeting and registering Clients who visit the Food Pantry, and I find it gratifying and inspiring to play a modest part in WVCS's mission.
