Why I Give: Jim Hartlieb
By Jim Hartlieb, MOM Board Member
I have been a proud board member and supporter of MOM for almost 10 years. MOM has my steadfast support because of how hard I see our staff and volunteers work to directly and positively impact people in our community who need help the most.
I think about how I feel and how my kids feel (ornery, cranky, not at our best!) when they are hungry and I think, “what if we had to live like that every day?”.
We were all born into certain circumstances that may have helped or hurt our chances to have a successful, prosperous life. Should those circumstances dictate how a person has to live their entire life? I don’t think so.
Everyone deserves a chance. I’ve been inspired by the stories of people who, when given a chance, use their abilities to rise up above their circumstances to make a better life for themselves and for their family. MOM has played a role in many of these stories and I’m proud to have played a small role in it!
