This month we’d like to shine the light on Junior Carrillo. Junior is one of our big helpers with the Food Program. On Mondays, Wednesday, and Friday, he helps to go get several hundred pounds of food each time and bring them back to the center. He then unloads the items, helps to unpack and organize, before helping us to monitor the handing out of the food. In fact it was Junior who got the WalMart Food Program back up and running here at the center after talking to the Manager. Junior also helps out whenever we need him. He retired 1 1/2 years ago so he says he has a lot more time to volunteer. He first heard about the center after seeing Executive Director Penny Lilburn at the Citrus Harvest Festival. Originally from Los Angeles, he moved out to the area when he was three so he considers himself a native of these parts. He spent 37 years in the car business, either as a salesman or in upper management. Married, he also has three boys, one girl, ten grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild. Thanks Junior for helping us to lift this heavy load.
