Don Newcomb has volunteered with God's Love since 1996. In those nearly 20 years, a lot has changed. We've moved locations, expanded our services outside of HIV/AIDS and increased our client numbers to almost 5,000 people each year. What hasn't changed though is Don's unwavering commitment to our mission. Don has dedicated over 1,200 hours to volunteering with us. Whether it's scooping rice, packaging pork or chopping onions, Don continues to be a staple on the Tuesday packout shift, imbuing everything he does with humor and love.
