Post No. 2 – Testimonial

Valdez, Alaska

“Enthusiastically efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Ruby. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ruby for the better part of a year, during which time I supervised her as a volunteer for the Valdez Food Bank. (I knew Ruby from the library for her exceptional customer service in support of my research projects as well as her vibrant preschool storytime program.) Above all, I was impressed with Ruby’s ability to listen to and empathize with the clients and to take quick action on their behalf. And, of course, her singing and her smile really made the distribution hours fly by. Ruby would be a true asset for any position requiring quick thinking and a sense of humor and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.” Dorenda K.

Saturday was distribution day at the Valdez Food Bank. I’d clock in and navigate compliance with the federal grants we received.

I lived in rural Alaska until I left it in the rearview and drove the Alaska Highway in ’19 to relocate to the Seattle area.
