Arnie WittSeveral years after Arnie Witt moved to Northfield, he visited the CAC to become involved as a volunteer.  Arnie had recently retired from a career in education and was eager to help people in his new community. The CAC needed a volunteer to go to local groceries each week to pick up food donations. Now, 12 years later, he continues to make twice-weekly trips to four groceries. He also works at least one day each month in the Food Shelf. In 2011, Arnie personally picked up, delivered and weighed over 10 tons of food!

Arnie is an expert in all aspects of our food distribution, and he is a huge asset to the Community Action Center. After volunteering for the past 12 years, Arnie continues saying that he gets much more than he gives, and remains committed to helping the CAC prevent hunger in Northfield. Arnie is a true treasure, and we are grateful he stopped into the CAC to volunteer his time!
