Meet Mary: March's Volunteer of the Month!
Mary has volunteered in different capacities throughout her life. However, in the recent past, work had become so all-consuming, as happens to many of us, that she "strayed for a while". Mary shares that she felt its absence. Then Mary's friend, Sue, who volunteers in the Clothing Market, suggested she come by HOPE House for a tour. As soon as Mary walked in the door, she states "I knew this was it for me". "I was drawn to the people right from that first day. HOPE House has many Programs that assist our community when they need a hand up. This is so important in a community to do so in the most dignified way. Being part of a community is vital and HOPE house embodies just that; this is what drew me to HOPE House".
The people are what keeps Mary within the walls of HOPE House as a volunteer. "The staff are wonderful and supportive. The volunteers are great to be around and, most importantly, the community members are the most wonderful , kind and inspirational people".
