Pat is from the Grace Christian Church in Fond Du Lac, WI. Pat has been with our Ruby’s distribution from the very beginning, five years ago. Growing up in a military family, she learned early in life how to delegate jobs to others and keep things organized. That made her a perfect fit for the Volunteer Coordinator position. Pat has been a real go-getter. She would make sure things were done to her satisfaction, sometimes coming early on the day of the distribution or extra days during the week to make sure items were in order.
Pat is not only a hard worker, but a woman with a huge heart for people and their needs. She would regularly have a hug or a kind word for a volunteer and knows the importance of making the volunteers feel valuable and appreciated. Pat has always stayed very committed to Ruby’s. Although Pat stepped down from being a Site Coordinator several months ago, she continues to volunteer. So, although she is not physically helping us anymore on distribution night, she is doing what she can to still be a part. We know that no matter where she goes or what she does in the future, the people she has served alongside, as well as the guests at Ruby’s, will always have a special place in her heart.
