Thanks to our volunteers

…a message from Executive Director Marsha Eichelberger

Sometimes I feel like a broken record. I must say the words “thank you” at least once an hour, in some way. We just have so many people to thank! We’re really doing the impossible here—making marked change for dozens of families in Montgomery County on the leanest budget imaginable. We’re not fancy—we don’t employ top-tier marketing firms to increase our visibility and solicit donations; we don’t even have IT staff or development officers. What we do have, however, is a proven track record of families moving from poverty to self-sufficiency.

That’s all thanks to our volunteers. Yes, we thank you all the time, but it’s never enough. Our tireless volunteers are why we’re able to fulfill our mission, and why so many local families are safe and stable. This year, we’ve started acknowledging our volunteers in a new way, with an award named after one of the most dedicated folks to ever offer their elbow grease to the people of Inter-Faith: Ed Morgenson. The Edgar Morgenson Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented to a volunteer who, just like Ed, made a significant impact on our community in combatting issues of poverty and homelessness.

People like Ed—and you—are vital to our mission. So again we say:

Thank you.

Executive Director Marsha Eichelberger
