Testimonials

I've delivered food to people with absolutely nothing - not even furniture. I got my kids involved because I realized I couldn't just tell them about it; they had to see it for themselves. And they have learned a lot. Their way of thinking is different now. They appreciate how much they have and they understand the value of giving back.
Aline Saad, Office and Mobile Food Pantry Volunteer
Zaman is such an amazing organization that does so much for the community. I enjoy volunteering with them because I feel like I'm actually making a difference in people's lives. I was able to sort and deliver food and clothing to women and children who needed a helping hand. Volunteering with Zaman is so rewarding, I am very grateful to have been able to do my part.
