Today, we are shining the spotlight on our Administration Coordinator, Hazel Amodeo-Thomson!
Hazel started off as a part of our incredible volunteer team and has grown to become a full-time member of our Operations team!
I started as a volunteer and saw first-hand the organization’s impact on the community. I just feel so blessed to be part of it. Aside from being able to serve the community, it’s also the fact that I don’t feel tired of doing what I do.
To Hazel, giving is its own reward, thanks to the kindness and gratitude of our clients.
An impactful memory I have is being thanked for something as little as listening to someone on the phone. I took my time listening and rephrasing to make sure I understood everything she wanted to say. At the end of the phone call, I couldn’t believe how many times she thanked me. It touched my heart. That simple thing I did, I made someone’s day.
Hazel, thank you for everything you do here at The Mississauga Food Bank! We are so lucky to have you.
