February Volunteer of the Month: Joy Thompson


February’s Volunteer of the month is Joy Thompson of Eagle River. I met Joy at St. Anthony’s during the holidays, where she was guiding a group of Chugiak/Eagle Rive Food Bank volunteers in distributing Christmas gifts and food for those in need.

She’s run several food banks and pantries over the years, currently you can find her at Eagle River Presbyterian church parking lot on Saturdays helping distribute food with the pantry.

She’s been at it for some 14 years, planning to quit when the hunger ends.
