How did you hear about ONT?
I first heard about Our Neighbors' Table at the Lion's Club where Lyndsey came and spoke about ONT. I don't attend many meetings, but just happened to be at one where they talked about Our Neighbors' Table. I also heard about it at my church. I attend the Main Street Congregational Church and they are always trying to get folks to volunteer with them when they work down at the pantry.
How long have you been volunteering at ONT?
I've been volunteering since November 2015.
I help out with the To Gos. Someone prepares the food and packages them. I pass them out to anyone who wants them at the meal. They tell me how many they would like.
Why do you volunteer?
I know what it means to need help and I want to be there for others who need it.
What keeps you coming back to volunteer at ONT?
It's a great experience here. Everyone is very nice at Our Neighbors' Table.
Tell us a little about your guide dog!
I've had Deiter for 3 years. He's a great service dog and loves to come with me to Our Neighbors' Table. He's not very old. I had a black lab for 9 years before I had Deiter.
