AJ Food Bank Rehabilitation Project Underway
Patching, painting and cleaning up at the food bank has been going on for weeks. Clear Concepts donated new glass windows for the client intake area and the bigger job of fixing up the place was headed by AJFB Board Member Gary Kloefkorn, an architect with a lot of experience. Labor was provided by Board Members, staff and a couple volunteers. It was important, though, that the staff and board took on the project to improve pride and moral among its 125 volunteer ranks.
AJFB Operations Manager Jim Jones, right, and part-timers Ryan Martinez and Austin Montjo pause the work for a picture.
AJFB Board Members Gary Kloefkorn and Sharon Allison-Brown paint the lobby area of the food bank. Gary donated most of the supplies and everyone worked dozens of hours to upgrade the facility, built in 1993.
