Wendy Broderick, a 20-year nonprofit veteran, has been named CEO of Harvest Hope Food Bank.
Broderick most recently served as the YMCA of Columbia’s chief development and marketing officer, leading that organization’s first comprehensive fundraising plan. She also led the startup of the Jeep Rogers Family YMCA in Northeast Columbia, the organization’s largest facility.
“We are thrilled to have such an experienced and caring leader join our organization,” Harvest Hope board chair Erinn Rowe said in a news release. “Wendy brings 20 years of nonprofit experience to our organization. She believes in our mission and has been our advocate for some time, so we are excited for Wendy to lead our organization.”
Broderick has worked with Harvest Hope’s Kids Café program and championed the YMCA’s year-round food programs. She has served as chair of the Greater Blythewood Chamber of Commerce and president of the Rotary Club of Blythewood.
“Serving our community is my passion,” Broderick said. “I’m so honored to have the chance to work with an outstanding organization like Harvest Hope. Last year, they served nearly 23 million meals to people in 20 South Carolina counties.”
Harvest Hope serves the Midlands, Pee Dee and Greater Greenville areas.
