Inspired by her mother, an ordained pastor who frequently talks about helping the less fortunate, Aubrie accepted an invitation by the food bank’s organizer to volunteer her time. “Sometimes it’s hard, I am the only young person from my church who works at the food bank and at the Institute,” explained Aubrie. “The happiness on the faces of those we serve is more than I can ask for. I would tell other young people that it is a learning experience we should all have, and the feeling you get back is well worth your time.”
