Throughout her life, Britta McGuire has done service projects for Interfaith Outreach, many related to the food shelf. “It wasn’t until I joined Women with Purpose that I learned the food shelf is really the tip of the iceberg of services we provide our community.” Giving back is a core value shared by Britta and Interfaith Outreach. “It’s a place I know my time and financial contributions are directly benefitting my neighbors.”
One of Britta McGuire’s earliest memories is participating in the Adopt-A-Family gift program (now called Holiday Gift). “That was really the first time I realized many kids were not asking for toys, but for basic necessities.” Now this mother of three is making sure her children discover the joy of helping others.
This past summer, Britta and her 5-year-old daughter ordered supplies, counted out folders and notebooks, and created back-to-school kits. “[Dropping the kits off] was a wonderful opportunity to teach her about helping others,” Britta said. “Our involvement with Interfaith Outreach ensures our kids will learn about the needs in our community and have the opportunity to help meet those needs.”
Britta is grateful our community has Interfaith Outreach and supports it in as many ways as she can. Thanks, Britta!
