Thank you to everyone who participated in our Values initiative by nominating co-workers and exhibiting/practicing our values in their day-to-day work. We are an outstanding agency because of each of you and all of us.

July’s Value was Compassion: Understanding the suffering of others and wanting to do something about it.
We had several nominations, all for the same person. I think we can all agree that Manny Tavis is a perfect example of someone who displays compassion.

From the nomination forms:

Every time I see Manny outside, I see him helping people in the Food Pantry. When ladies come with their kids, Manny help to put the food inside the cart for them and sometimes I have seen him pushing the cart for them so they can hold the babies. During these hard times it is a little difficult to find people with the same dedication as Manny”.

Manny works to help people experiencing food insecurity with a passion. He is always Iooking for opportunities to reach more people with more deliveries and helped to expand mobile delivery sites to reach as many people as he can”.

Thank you Manny for all that you do at Access Community Action Agency!
