Harold VanDuyn

My parents completed just eight grades in school, and my father had an alcohol addiction. Having enough to feed our family was difficult. After I retired from Steelcase, I felt a nudge to give back and began helping with food programs. Nearly seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma cancer. I have days that aren’t the best, but helping people and encouraging others can turn a down day into a good day. I grew up with faith in God, and that faith has continued to grow as I’ve grown older. With the additional time I have been given on this earth, it is my responsibility to give back and bless others.
