As a 20-year Dallas County resident, John operated clubs and restaurants before settling into the retail field in later years. Although he had a long career in hospitality and retail, when it comes to volunteer service, John is most at home at Crossroads.
“It’s a great environment,” he says. “It’s extremely well-run and they have big hearts.”
John says he’s also learned a lot about hunger in his community since he first started volunteering with Crossroads.
“I’m compassionate for families who have to work two or three jobs to improve their life,” he says. “I don’t know what they’d be able to do if they weren’t doing that.”
After February’s extreme winter storm, he thought a lot about the people who were already struggling to make ends meet even before the storm.
He feels grateful to be able to do something to help.
“[Crossroads] fulfills the needs of every human being that comes through this place,” he says.
We’re so grateful to John for putting his heart into helping our neighbors who are facing hunger. His service – and that of each and every volunteer – makes a difference!
