Susan Boonstra, Kari Goldschmidt, Megan Davis and Christie Kurth
Hello. My name is Susan Boonstra and I am the Inventory and Building Coordinator at the Willmar Area Food Shelf. I have
been employed at WAFS for 12 plus years. I enjoy the work I do and feel that it is worthwhile. My 2 daughters are 16
years old and once in a while they do volunteer work here too!
Kari Goldschmidt, Volunteer Coordinator/Office Manager
Hi, my name is Kari Goldschmidt. I am the Volunteer Coordinator/Office Manager here at WAFS. I joined this amazing team
in November 2012. I enjoy working with the staff, volunteers and community members visiting the food shelf. Helping
assist with the operations of both the Willmar and New London sites is a highlight for me. I am married and blessed with
3 young adult children, 2 sons and 1 step-daughter. I truly look forward to going to work everyday and making a
difference in the lives of people who need a little assistance as they travel through their life's journey.
