Volunteers Rising

“Hey, how are you today?”

The guy in the Wednesday lunch line looks up. Scott Graham is not only filling a tray for him, he’s also making a personal connection.

“You look like you’re hungry,” Scott says. “Let me get you a little extra.”

Scott and his wife, Taffey, volunteer at the Mission every Wednesday to serve or prepare food—wherever they’re most needed. One of their favorite things is to look someone in the eye, remember their name and ask how they’re doing. It sounds simple, but it can change a life.
