“In high school, I was involved in a program that took us to volunteer with Martha’s Table for a day. I worked in the food prep area making sandwiches. Everyone was so friendly, and left a lasting impression on me.”

Why did you get involved originally, what made you want to volunteer and why Martha’s Table?

“In high school at St. John’s CHS, we did a lot of canned food drives through Martha’s table. They would always give us information about the organization and I’ve always admired the work that happened here. When I decided to get involved in helping my community, Martha’s Table was my first choice.”

Is there a moment that stands out in your mind about your volunteer experience, with another volunteer or with our staff?

“All experiences with Martha’s Table have been great but one that stands out particularly would have to be the first time I went out on McKenna’s Wagon. Actually seeing the clients first hand, being able to give them their meal and seeing the smiles on their faces was an incredible experience.”
