Congratulations Ron Torpy, Our 7 Everyday Hero!

When you think of heroes, you might visualize someone in uniform, maybe even someone wearing a cape and tights, but when the team at Food Bank of the Rockies thinks about a hero, we think about Ron Torpy, our long-time volunteers and truly a hero to the hungry in our community.

Come visit our reclamation area Monday – Wednesday, and even a few Saturdays, and you’re likely to find Ron there, sorting food, lifting boxes and helping the other volunteers with questions.  Ron, a retired letter carrier, will tell you he enjoys the physical activity and keeping in shape.  And we’re sure glad he does. Since 2003, Ron has contributed more than 13,400 hours – the equivalent of 6 1/2 years of full time work!

We were so excited when 7 News’ Mitch Jelniker surprised Ron with a visit to the food bank during one of his volunteer shifts to present him with a 7 Everyday Hero award.

Thank you Ron for all you do to help us fight hunger.  You are truly deserving of this honor and we’re so grateful to have you as a volunteer!

Watch Ron’s story on Channel 7’s webpage.
