Board Members, Staff, and Volunteers
Our board members, staff, and volunteers work throughout the year to serve clients in need of food assistance throughout Hood River County and Mosier. We'd like to share their stories - and hope you'll consider joining us as a volunteer. If you're curious, learn more about the FISH history in the county's communities.
Billie is our volunteer coordinator. She has worked with FISH for over 10 years, and helps make sure volunteers are trained and available throughout the year. She divides her time among the 4 FISH sites, and during the Covid-19 crisis is often found at FISH, making sure we are operating safely. Billie has recently been involved in implementing the new Link2Feed software at FISH, and she writes the monthly newsletter.
Becky moved with her husband and two daughters to Hood River 32 years ago. She's been a volunteer at FISH Food Bank since November 2004 when Marianne Durkan asked her to take over the treasurer responsibilities. Becky says, "Since I had recently retired from Sprint, this seemed like a good fit for me. While working and raising a family, it was hard to find time to volunteer, so this presented an opportunity for me to make a difference in our community. I jumped in headfirst and haven’t looked back." Becky continues to serve as Board Treasurer.
