This month, we caught up with Brenda Gurfinkel, who is a Delivery Driver out of our Beaverton Fred Meyer location, and who also delivers as part of our free food box program! Brenda has given more than 64 hours of her time since joining Store to Door in October of 2022.
Q: How did you first get involved with Store to Door?
A: I was looking for volunteer opportunities in HandsOn Greater Portland and came across Store to Door.
Q: What keeps you busy when you are not volunteering with Store to Door?
A: I have two teenage kids, 17 and 18 and two dogs. I try to soak up as much time with them as possible as my daughter is leaving for college in August. We love to play board games together and do crosswords. I love to work out. I love being outside. I love doing home remodeling projects and love to travel!
Q: What is something that your fellow volunteers would be surprised to know about you?
A: I have my general contractors license and am very adept at doing household projects such as tiling, trim work, and electrical as well as interior design.
Q: What would you tell someone who is thinking of volunteering with Store to Door?
A: I would tell them to absolutely do it. All of the clients are so appreciative and really need this service. It is a great way to give back to the people and community that could use a helping hand. I find it very gratifying to see the impact it has each time I drop groceries off.
Big thanks to Brenda and all of our wonderful volunteers for making our work supporting homebound members of our community possible! If you are interested in getting involved, visit https://storetodooroforegon.volunteerhub.com/ to sign up today!
