Meet the Volunteers
The Faces of Our Organization
In 2021, after a pandemic pushed us to expand, Naples Open Cupboard has developed and grown in a positive direction. We’re very proud of the tradition of volunteerism in our small community. Find out more about some of our team members below.
President, Board of Directors
June has managed the Open Cupboard as an unpaid volunteer for 10 years, taking pride in serving the Naples community, which she calls family. This is why we named the Pantry after her as a tribute to a full decade of selfless service. You can find her emptying the bins daily, endlessly sorting clothes, and lovingly listening to the needs of community members. She brings her years of experience and skills to the forefront in helping our organization grow and succeed.
Food Pantry Director
Secretary, Board of Directors
Cora joined Naples Open Cupboard with the vision and drive to improve upon our Food Bank, and focused on developing the organization with experience and integrity. She brings her many years of experience managing the Friendship House, and is our magic bullet when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of stretching a donated dollar. She can turn $20 into a pallet of goods for the community. Cora enjoys boating and spending time with her family. She is an invaluable asset to Naples.
Vice President, Board of Directors
Experienced, trustworthy, fun. These are just a few of the ways coworkers describe this member of our team. An avid skier and sailor, she has been downhill skiing since age 2 and enjoys racing E-Scow sailboats at the Keuka Yacht Club. She is responsible for the infrastructure of the newly formed Open Cupboard non-profit, from the incorporation to grassroots marketing and web design. With 20 years in a Director-level career, her business development background is essential to operations and growth.
