MFB Pennsylvania volunteer brings energy and fun

Julie DeBoard hadn't heard of Midwest Food Bank Pennsylvania until Kathy Anderson-Martin told her that she had accepted the position of Executive Director.

"I knew Kathy from when she worked at the Salvation Army," says Julie. "When she told me she was going to work for MFB, I decided to check it out, and I've been here ever since.

Julie started helping on food distribution days and now helps with bookkeeping, inventory, and greets people at the front desk. Volunteering at a faith-based organization is important to Julie because she knows that food and the Gospel can impact people.
Julie DeBoard brings energy and fun to the volunteer roles she fills at MFB Pennsylvania.
"I was a single Mom for a while, many years ago, and I didn't have a supportive family," says Julie. "I certainly could have utilized a food pantry."

She is also thankful for her 27 years of marriage to her husband, Todd, and her daughter Kristina.

"God has blessed me in countless ways throughout my life, and I try to pass those blessings on to others as much as possible," says Julie.

She is certainly doing that by sharing her work-life experience with MFB. Julie has an accounting degree from Penn State and spent 25 years as a staff accountant for a retirement community.

"Julie brings high energy and fun to the bookkeeping team," says Kathy. "We're blessed with the gifts of her talent and time."

Besides MFB, Julie likes to read - a lot! She reads about 75 books a year. And in case that isn't enough to start a conversation with Julie, be sure to ask her about Scooby, a house-trained pot-bellied pig she had for 19 years.

"My favorite pastimes are Pittsburgh Steelers football, reading, walking, traveling, and did I mention Pittsburgh Steelers?" says Julie.

Julie's fun-loving spirit and desire to serve, make her an impactful volunteer.

"I love the mission of MFB, giving food that would otherwise go to waste, at no cost, to those in need," she says.
