Eight volunteers spent the afternoon of January 27 in the food pantry at HVAF. When the American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters Accounting Team arrived, there were bags and boxes of new food and hygiene donations lining the hallway, with more in the pantry. The donations needed to be sorted, checked for expiration dates, labeled, and organized on the shelves.
“Our Compliance Accountant was particularly enthusiastic about organizing the donations which were already on the shelves to better utilize the limited spacing,” says Carmela Garcia Accounting Grants Coordinator, American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters. “Meanwhile, half of us were in charge of sorting and labeling new donations, while the other half were putting these away neatly on the shelves. All new donations were labeled and organized on the food pantry shelves within a couple hours.”
