VTO with Heart – Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana

At the Gene B. Glick Company, we are committed to strengthening the quality of life and giving back to the communities we call home. As part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, we encourage our team members to give back to their communities through volunteerism and empower them to do so through our paid volunteer time off (VTO) program. Our ‘VTO with Heart’ series highlights Glick team members using their VTO to volunteer with organizations close to their hearts.

Lisa Kidwell enjoys volunteering at Gleaners Food Bank where she helps prep and pass out food bags for their drive-through pantry. Gleaners has programs and partnerships to lead the fight against hunger in central Indiana, with their drive-through pantry being one of those programs. Lisa has volunteered at Gleaners with a group, but also on her own time.

Lisa chose to volunteer at Gleaners Food Bank because she says she feels like she can do the most good for the most people in a short amount of time. "You really see a wide range of people in our community who utilize their services, so it's an immediate way to make an impact for good."

After her time volunteering at Gleaners Food Bank, we caught up with Lisa to learn more about how volunteering is part of her life.

How Does Volunteering Impact Your Life?

"It’s probably one of the most satisfying things I do. Giving back to the community has always been important to me, so this is just one way for me to feel like I make a difference."

What Does Glick’s VTO Mean to You?

"It’s my favorite perk! So many companies don’t offer anything like this, so I’ll never take it for granted."

Are There Other Organizations That You Work with That You Want Others to Know About?

"I really like all kinds of volunteer opportunities. I’ve been lucky enough to participate in the Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build the last couple of years, and that’s becoming a favorite of mine."
