Hello! My name is Heidy and this is my 4th year being a student coordinator at the Bulldog Pantry. I started interning at the Bulldog Pantry as a freshman at Fresno State. I graduated in 2017 from Porterville High School. I am majoring in Sociology and minoring in Civic Urban Education and Humanics. I saw interning at the Bulldog Pantry as a great opportunity for me to enhance my civic engagement through volunteer service in a prominent social issue that is food insecurity. I can say that the Bulldog Pantry has had a huge positive impact on my life in that I am able to develop communication, time management, organizing, and leadership skills. I also get to work closely in identifying, and addressing a social issue that impacts a significant number of our community members. I am glad that I made the choice to be apart of the Bulldog Pantry team and am excited to see what the future has in store for us!
I am Hermelinda Hernandez and an English Major- Creative Writing at Fresno State. I have been with the Bulldog Pantry for one year and it has been a great experience so far. At this time I am unavailable to help out but once school begins I hope to continue my service with the Pantry.
Hi! My name is Freddy and I am a criminal justice major here at Fresno State. This is my first semester here with the Bulldog Pantry, but it has been a very rewarding experience so far! I chose to become a student coordinator here because I wanted to help make sure people were fed during these crazy times we’re living in. I am very grateful to be a part of this great organization and am very excited to help out in any way that I can.
Hello everyone! My name is Sharity Ficher and I am a sophomore at Fresno State majoring in pre-nursing with an emphasis in communicative disorders. I just finished a whole semester at the Bulldog Pantry and I couldn’t be more happier to be a part of this organization. At first I chose to become a student coordinator with the Pantry because I was looking to improve on skills that would benefit me in my major, but I soon came to realize that skills were not the only only thing I would receive. I found a staff that devotes so much time and effort in making sure our Fresno community is taken care of. I found myself getting more in touch with my community by creating bonds and friendships that I never would have expected. It’s amazing to see a community who cares for one another. It has been such a humbling and wonderful experience to be a part of this organization.
I have been privileged to work with the Student Coordinators of the Bulldog Pantry for 3 years now. As the president of the Lutheran Campus Ministry board I oversee the students who run the pantry. I am lucky to be able to volunteer my time to work along side the students. This is one way I live out my calling to “mend creation” that was instilled in me during my time as a student involved in Lutheran Campus Ministries of Fresno.
