Volunteer of the Month: January 2019

Margaret Carter, “Coupon Lady”

Margaret Carter first became acquainted with Heart to Heart five years ago after moving to Columbus. She first volunteered as a shopper, but for the last three years she has become well known in the pantry as the “Coupon Lady”.

Heart to Heart provides a coupon box that clients are welcome to search through to save money on items the pantry does not provide. Margaret has stepped into the role of managing, clipping, and sorting coupons.

“Even though this is a very small job in the life of Heart to Heart, it is just a way in which I can play a part in this wonderful ministry, helping clients to save a little money and serving God.”

Thank you, Margaret!
