Mike Jellesma

All of us at HCC want to introduce to you Mike, an outstanding volunteer who has spent many hours serving others with our HCC team.

Mike has volunteered weekly at the North Phoenix location since January of this year and is a jack of all trades. He shops for food with our clients, cleans and helps maintain the center and is kept very busy processing food donations. “I have worked in all areas and enjoy them all, but the one that fits me best is the processing of incoming donations. It is physically demanding and good exercise, I love it!” replied Mike.

Mike was born in South Dakota and is a Navy Veteran. He spent decades working in sales and manufacturing and now owns and manages residential rental properties with his wife. He is a dad of two grown daughters and a proud grandfather to four grandchildren.

Mike’s wife was the first to volunteer at HCC. She was impressed with our outreach and suggested he give it a try. Mike said, “I came out to volunteer and found that HCC was very organized and has an effective system to serve those in need. My co-volunteers help create a great environment to work in. If you’re looking for a place to get plugged in, check out HCC. They need help almost every day of the week and can find a place for you!”

Mike is grateful for his time volunteering at HCC and wanted to give a shout out to center manager Lori, who is a great teacher and helps everyone feel good about their volunteer work!

Thank you again, Mike, for your dedication and hard work. You are truly treasured!
