“The pantry has a way of making us feel like guests and not people in need.”
It’s been 25 years since I came to the Y with my kids, and then my knees were bad so there were a few problems. But my daughter kept saying, ‘Go to the Y, go to the Y.’
Finally, thank God, last year I decided to come. My knees are a little bit better. I look forward to the Y whenever there’s swimming or exercise classes. I come to the food pantry after I exercise, and now I’m volunteering with the garden program. You meet a lot of new friends here. Thank God, I’m busy.
