Double The Help

 Identical twins Scott and Brian McPherson share not only similar facial features, but a desire to give back to their community through volunteering.

Scott and Brian have been coming out to the Foodbank to volunteer frequently for over a year now.  If you asked them, they could each probably recite all the statistics featured in the video shown to new volunteer groups.

Most people would tire of seeing the same video over and over again, but Scott and Brian use it as a reminder of why they come out to volunteer.  They know that the work that they put in has a huge impact not only in their community of St. Charles, but throughout the bi-state region.

They feel like they get as much out of the experience as the people that receive the product.  They also use their experiences to help new volunteers.

We’re appreciative of everything they do to help feed the hungry.  The 57,000 people that rely on the Foodbank for assistance appreciate their efforts as well.

Separately, they’re both great, but working together, they’re even better.

Watch the video below to learn a little more about Scott and Brian and why they choose to volunteer at the St. Louis Area Foodbank.
