Volunteer Impact – Paul Messer

Paul Messer is the Store Manager at Hannaford-Broadway in Bangor, and when asked whether Hannaford could pack food boxes for Good Shepherd Food Bank, he didn’t disappoint. Paul recruited and scheduled over 27 employees from different Hannaford locations to help pack over 2,400 Senior Boxes. Senior Boxes is another name for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program which Paul’s coworkers worked fast and efficiently, with one group of three volunteers setting a record of building NINE pallets (which equates to 360 boxes) in a shift. The Food Bank is very grateful to Paul and all the Hannaford employees who volunteer their time and make a difference in their communities. Paul shared, “The pandemic has really shined a light on the number of people struggling with hunger. Working side by side with other amazing Hannaford associates to make a difference addressing the issue of hunger in our community is very rewarding.”
