What made you want to volunteer with Martha’s Table?
I spent five years working at a non-profit agency that provided social services to the low-income community in California. Being new to DC and now a federal employee, I really missed the sense of community working at a non-profit agency provided and the ability to directly touch the lives of those in need. I first found out about Martha’s Table last summer, when I needed to find a place to donate some clothes. It was a wonderful surprise to see that not only did Martha’s Table operate a community boutique store, there were also food security programs, child development and education programs. Martha’s Table has the type of holistic approach to social services that is critical for meeting the needs of families. I respect and believe in that approach and wanted to help Martha’s Table make a difference in my community.
