Maija is an amazing volunteer that has been with ExtraFood for over 2 1/2 years and has just achieved the milestone of completing 500 food trips, while recovering over 53,000 lbs. of food!
This year alone, Maija has 214 trips and regularly handles our biggest donations from Novato to Sausalito. Several times a week she is one of our faithful “regulars” at the Half Day Cafe for the Byte donations and delivers to many grateful recipients including Peoples in Marin City, Whistlestop and Sausalito Presbyterian Church.
Maija helped during the County Fair distribution and she also participates as a volunteer at the Novato Farmers’ Market on Tuesday evenings. Maija’s positive attitude and energy is always on display as she connects with all of her grateful recipients - they are thrilled when they see Maija arrive! Maija has made an enormous impact in our community as her commitment has touched many lives! Thank you for your amazing contributions!
