Amparo Salazar, a sophomore at South Fort Myers High School, has been volunteering at the Harlem Heights food pantry for three years now. That’s where she is getting her volunteer hours for school.

She said she loves to do it because it’s giving back to the community. She bagged the food for the first two years and now she’s a greeter every Wednesday after school from 5 to 7 p.m.

She said she plans to continue to volunteer there as long as possible or until she graduates and goes off to college.  She wants to go to Florida Southwestern.

Her boss at the food pantry is a family friend she’s known since she was little. She first started at the pantry because she thought it was a good way thank her friend.

Amparo’s good deeds have not gone unnoticed by the school.

“Amparo is very selfless, outstanding young lady who has devoted several hours to volunteering in her own community,” Principal Layner said.

She eventually wants to be a vet and help animals when she gets older. She said she wouldn’t mind being a doctor either but she has a thing for animals.

“It just makes me happy to see other people happy,” Amparo said.
