Today the volunteers worked at Mary’s Place in their Day Center kitchen. Mary’s Place, as they state on their website, is “a leading voice for homeless women, children, and families in emergency situations. We empower families to reclaim their lives by offering community, acceptance, hope and dignity. Our work keeps struggling families together and provides practical tools and resources that help them find housing and employment. We inspire the community to support homeless women, children, and families through advocacy, partnerships, volunteerism and philanthropy.” Volunteers chopped fruit and vegetables, for salads being served at lunch in the Day Center, and made meatloaf and diced potatoes that would be served for dinner at their several shelter locations. Mary’s Place is able to provide 450 places for homeless families in the area. The food prepared today will feed those people. It was a wonderful day interacting with the kitchen staff and each other, listening and sharing stories.
