I have had so many memories and moments at Martha’s Table it’s hard to just pick one. However, if have to say my most memorable moment was the first day I came to volunteer. It was a Tuesday and I had just gotten up from the orientation table. I stood in the middle of the prep room feeling a little lost. One of the lead volunteers, Mrs. Marie, approached me smiling and said, “Go ahead and put on your hair net and help package these desserts.” From that point on, I knew I wanted to be a welcoming lead volunteer just like her. Marie showed me the ropes to every task possible. This allowed me, not only to complete things in ample time, it helped me be of more assistance and teach others how I was taught. Thanks a million Mrs. Marie, truly.
