Each year, our Good Neighbor Awards honor some of the dedicated neighbors. They volunteer their time to help seniors and people with disabilities get the resources and support they need to age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are delighted to honor Carol and Gwen as our 2020 Good Neighbor Honorees for the Bayview Grocery Network.
Carol Nolan started volunteering for the Bayview-Hunters Point Food Delivery program back in the fall of 2016. She exhibits her caring and concern for the community by volunteering to compile more than 120 bags of groceries each week.
She also regularly delivers those groceries to homebound seniors in her neighborhood. As a result, they have nourishing food to eat.
Carol’s love of community stems from her love of family. She gives a great deal of support to her children and grandchildren.
You can rely on Gwen Thomas to get things done.
For the past four years, she has faithfully and consistently volunteered in the Home Delivered Grocery Program in the Bayview-Hunters Point community. Each Monday, rain or shine, Gwen takes the bus to oversee the bagging process so food can be delivered consistently.
Gwen shows her dedication to the community in many ways. She also volunteers at the Asian Pacific American Community Center on Raymond Street and the San Francisco Marin Foodbank. On top of that, she shares her activism with other community-based groups.
