If you’ve volunteered at The Idaho Foodbank on a Tuesday afternoon, then you have more than likely met Rob Smiley. Rob and his family have been weekly volunteers since January 2011. In addition to his Tuesday shift, Rob has participated in Stamp Out Hunger, Scouting for Food and Hunger Bowl – the food drive trifecta!
Rob made the mistake of telling our volunteer coordinator that he would help with “whatever.” In that capacity he has written news stories for our website, become involved with recruiting new volunteers and most recently acted as a guest speaker on behalf of the Foodbank for Lowell Scott Middle School’s Life Skills program.
This dedication would be impressive in any volunteer, but Rob is one of our teen volunteers! Rob graduated from Centennial High School last weekend and will leave this fall for Utah State University. Thanks in part to his volunteer activities, Rob was named a Huntsman Scholar and will pursue a dual major in engineering and business.
Congratulations, Rob! Your friends at The Idaho Foodbank wish you the best of luck in your college career.
