Thank You Dell Williams
December 2013 Feature Volunteer
Our featured volunteer for December is Dell Williams.
Dell was instrumental in establishing our partnership with
Second Harvest Food Bank. Dell continues to volunteer every month at our Family
Harvest food distribution.
"Dell Williams is
currently retired after a background of 40 years of engineering and
engineering-management with Government (NASA) and industry (Lockheed, Boeing and
Teledesic). He has been a resident of The Coastside for 24 years and currently
lives with his wife, Tish, in Moss Beach. After his retirement in 2002, he
joined the BOD of Coastside Hope, and as a past-president is still an honorary
member of The Board. Dell has been an active volunteer in the Coastside Hope
food programs for nearly 10 years and both started, and continues to volunteer
as a way of expressing his appreciation to Coastside neighbors who contribute so
much to making The Coastside the wonderful community that it is- but who
sometimes have needs that he, through Coastside Hope, can help them realize."

Coastside Hope is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing emergency food, clothing, shelter, and other safety net services since 1976. Demand for our services has grown significantly as a result of the recession of 2008-2009 and the ongoing fallout of the recession.
For example, in Fiscal Year 2013, Coastside Hope distributed 383,000 pounds of food, vs. 156,000 pounds in FY 2008 – an increase of over 145%.
Our mission is to help our neighbors meet their most basic needs while helping every one of us reach our full potential. The key to our success is the generous support of our community and the ever-expanding network of neighbors and community partners who share our vision and commitment to making the difference. Won't you join us in giving hope?
