Mitizi Brotherton Pays it Forward
“You pay it forward.”
Mitizi Brotherton has lived in the Wichita Falls area since 1971, but she continues to learn about the community she calls home through time spent volunteering at the Food Bank.
Mitizi, a retired court administrator, is in her third year of volunteer work with the Food Bank. She helps out each Monday and fills in other days as needed.
Whether cleaning during the COVID-19 pandemic, packing boxes of food for nursing homes or preparing PowerPak 4 Kids sacks, Mitizi is happy to give her time.
“Wichita Falls is so privileged to have the Food Bank,” she says.
Mitizi says her passion for service began from watching her parents, who served Thanksgiving dinners to between 300 and 400 people every year when Mitizi was a child — something that she never forgot and encourages her to this day in her quest to give back to her community.
Mitizi loves working with other volunteers and hopes that younger people will begin to volunteer more with the Food Bank.
“Every box, every sack we fill, good things go in there,” she says, which “makes you feel like you’re helping someone.”
Thank you, Mitizi and all of the amazing volunteers who give their time and energy to help provide nutritious food for children, families and seniors across our community!
