Volunteer of the Month: Emily

February 27, 2019

When a retiring weekend volunteer decided to pass the spatula along to the next generation, Emily Wasserman willingly took over.

Every weekend, Emily rises before the sun to serve a beautiful, nutritious breakfast at the Resource Center Soup Kitchen with love, patience, and the imagination of a “Chopped” champ.”

I wanted to become part of a community that is welcoming and cares about the issues of homelessness and food insecurity in Maine,” she says. “People deserve to be valued and taken care of, and I get to spend time with a bunch of genuine, kind, funny people. What could be better than that?”

Thank you, Emily, for all that you do to help our neighbors in need!
