This month we’d like to give thanks to a longtime volunteer and member, Marty Martinez is one of our Food Program volunteers. He comes in 3 times a week to help to get, load, unload, and pass over a thousand pounds of food per day. He has known Executive Director Penny Lilburn for a long time and he had known about the center. He’s started volunteering here just after joining the center back in 2005 and was our handyman and Jack of All Trades. He came to Penny looking for something to do. If anyone knows how to keep you busy, that would be her. She knew what to do with him. He’s been busy ever since. Originally from Fresno, CA, he spent 30 years in Air force. His last 17 were at Norton, where he retired from that job as a Loadmaster. He and wife Judith decided to stay in the area where they raised two kids, 5 grandkids, 5 great-grand kids. Thanks for lending us a not only a helping hand but a back as well.
