Claudia Dusseau

“Thursdays have become my very favorite day of the week.  It is the day that I volunteer at Heart to Heart and I have the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful and interesting clients and I get to work with the very best volunteers in the world.  It is just such a joyous place to be no matter what is going on in the world or your world.   You know that Heart to Heart will offer you kindness and calmness and a place to belong if only for a short time. I love to watch “it” happen to volunteers and clients alike when they come together to serve or be served. There is nothing like it!  Lamar wants all of us to gain something positive from our time together.  He encourages us to take the time to get to know clients and their families as we walk with them through the Heart to Heart grocery experience.  Like magic clients often open up and we all feel better being together with a common purpose…listening and sharing.”

Team Paul

“My best friend Paul Maynard and I have been volunteering for Heart to Heart over the past three years. We are food ‘mules’,  the easiest job imaginable— we pick up food donations from Target at the loading dock and bring them to the pantry at First Community Church each Friday. The best part of our involvement is that we do not have to do any administrative work and act like responsible adults, other than just remembering to go each week. We are inspired by the incredible generosity of the employees at the Target store who always interrupt their work routine to quickly gather food donations. We encounter many volunteers from church who are unfailingly enthusiastic, optimistic, and focused on their work. A monthly greeting from Lamar is enough to keep us inspired for, well I guess, indefinitely.  We are the poster boys receiving more than we give.”

April Bryant

Volunteer of the Month October 2019

April Bryant

The spotlight this month is on April Bryant who volunteers to answer calls from our Resource Help Line with a small group of volunteers.

“I have been volunteer for over 2 years. I have enjoyed every moment. I might not be able to help fully but I try to give as many resources I can. The clients are happy for the assistance! That’s the most rewarding feeling ever. I’m one of Heart to Heart’s clients. Becoming a volunteer was my way to give back!”

Your smile is your business card….

 

April often shares inspirational quotes, uplifting messages and thoughts to ponder with other volunteers and staff members, which is part of what makes her such a pleasure to work with. This month, she shared this great piece of advice from Maya Angelou.

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!
