Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I live in the neighborhood and have volunteered for Martha’s Table for 18 years.

What made you want to volunteer and why Martha’s Table?

I like helping when I can.  My son was in the daycare when they first got their license about 18 years ago, so that is how I came to Martha’s Table.  I know everyone here and like working in the front lobby market.

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

I like what Martha’s Table has done with the markets.  The market up at Rita Bright the last Thursday of the month is much better now that folks can choose the items they want.  When we distributed out of the back of Martha’s Table, we used to see folks take out the items that they didn’t want.  It is a better process now that folks can get more of what they want.
