WHO
WE ARE

The Team

White Pony Express began as an all-volunteer organization in 2013 and is committed to remaining a volunteer-powered organization. Our guiding principle is unity and we strive to keep this central to our work as a team and with the communities we serve. As our founder put it, WPE's goal is to truly embody "all of us taking care of all of us."

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

"I want to thank the volunteers, partners, staff, board, and supporters of White Pony Express for such a warm welcome. When I’ve volunteered with WPE, I’ve been my happiest. It is a dream come true to commit all of my time to this amazing effort that is pioneering new patterns of service and partnership."

Meet our Board

Members of our Board of Directors and team members in key operational roles are volunteers. Without our volunteer leaders and our circle of friends that support WPE through gifts of time and talent, our small and dedicated staff of 20 employees would not be able to fulfill our mission. 

DIRECTOR OF FOOD RESCUE OPERATIONS

Jeff O'Hearn

"We are an organization that responds to disparities by finding surplus and delivering it to those in need with a genuine feeling that we and the recipient are one. In doing so, we move toward the underlying goal of uplifting people and providing hope and purpose."

nor do we charge for the delivery. We simply care!”
