Over their years of service at St. Mary's Food Bank, Debra and Barry McBride have developed a great appreciation for the Food Bank's mission and a deep feeling of compassion for those being served.
"Seeing both staff and volunteers working together for the benefit of others makes us proud to be a part," said Barry. "Witnessing the leadership, both by Sr. Staff and the Board of Directors makes us confident in our Food Bank and its ability to meet the need now and in the future."
However, it is the future that concerns them. The need is increasing and support from the community is vital. Though leadership is here, Deb and Barry are very concerned that the need will also be here, well beyond their years. Because of this, and their love of the work, Deb and Barry have made a provision through their estate plan that will assure support of the Food Bank's mission beyond their lifetimes.
"Our love for the work is so deep that our involvement does not have to stop when we do, but can continue, and that makes us feel great."
