Volunteer Testimonies

Thank you for the  opportunity."                                                                                                                                                -Madeline Taylor, NAACP Youth Council                                                        

"We really enjoyed the experience and will definitely return. The staff was helpful and the information provided informative.

"I have worked with Mid-South Food Bank for the past several years to set up projects for our mission teams that come to Memphis to serve.  This is a delicate balancing act as we try to coordinate the groups coming in to work alongside local church members.  I am very thankful to partner with Mid-South Food Bank each year, as we are teaching our students what it means to serve others that have needs beyond our own."                                                                                                                            -Sherry Hall, Mid-South Baptist Association


 “I just wanted to personally thank you for everything you did for me as well as our entire group over the break.  I know I personally learned so much and another girl in my group was so moved by the organization that she is wanting to changed her major to what I’m doing and focus on working for a non-profit."
