Top Shelf Volunteers

NORTH LIBERTY– Judy and Paul McRoberts are a married couple who offer a unique dynamic to the North Liberty Food and Clothing Pantry. Both of the McRoberts can be found volunteering in different capacities around the pantry and were both an integral part of the planning of the new pantry building by serving on the Operations Committee.
The McRoberts started volunteering at the pantry at different times. Judy started 12 years ago and Paul started six years ago on a regular basis. They enjoy spending time together while they volunteer.
Judy got involved at the panty because she likes to be active in the community. Paul started at the pantry, he said, because he “enjoys helping people and the pantry is a good place to do it.” Paul is very warm and caring toward the families served by the pantry, and he trusts that most people are going to do the right thing.
The McRoberts want the community to know that the pantry is here so people can get the help they need, and pantry volunteers will make them feel welcome. “It makes a difference in people’s lives,” Paul said.
