Who: Tom Miller What: Volunteer Truck Driver (and soon to be Volunteer Photographer!)
Where: the Cary Route and often fills in on the North Route
When: since August 2009; once a week but if it is more than that, he’s usually helping on Thursdays to help with the Backpack Buddies Route.
Why: I worked in corporate America for numerous years, and after doing this I feel like I’m finally giving back to the community.”
Background: Tom is a freelance photographer for the Carolina Mudcats, NCSU Baseball, the Triangle Miracle League, and the Easter Seals of North Carolina and Virginia.
Tom first heard of the Food Shuttle back in the summer of 2009, when he and his wife moved to the area. His wife is a branch manager for the US Food Service, and through that connection he learned about the Food Shuttle. Tom was able to come a Culinary Job Training Program graduation soon after! Since then, he felt compelled to volunteer. He says,
I started volunteering because I was unemployed and it was something to keep me busy. But after being here, I think Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is a terrific organization. The staff is always so pleasant and easy to get along with.”
