Our volunteer, Mary, truly believes in our mission because she's benefited from it. Mary has been a client of ours for the past two years and now she just wants to payback the favor. Despite working in health care and education her entire life, Mary is still struggling to make ends meet. In fact, her only income is from Social Security and her mortgage alone costs more than half of that. However, "not having to spend money on food is what allows me to keep up my with bills" she says.
Thank you, Mary, for being such a genuinely sweet person. You have such an incredible warmth to you that spreads to everyone in our Pantry! It's been an honor to shop you as a client and to work alongside you as a volunteer.
