Steve Scott wants to help community in crisis.
When Steve Scott received his "COVID-19 vacation notice," as he calls it, from his employer, he knew how he'd be spending his time off—helping his community get through this crisis.
Steve works for a retail store that temporarily closed its stores in mid-March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He has spent every weekday since at Second Harvest making emergency food bags to be distributed at Mobile Market distributions.
A regular Mobile Market volunteer, Steve has seen how hunger impacts the community. He decided to spend his time off from work at Second Harvest because he knows the need for food assistance will grow during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I'm a firm believer that community is what we make of it—what we put into it," he said.
"Even though I'm one of the people who lives paycheck-to-paycheck, I'm grateful to have a paycheck," Scott said. "As someone who is healthy and active, volunteering at Second Harvest is something I can do to be there for those people who need food right now."
