Volunteering Through the Years: Judy Valasky

Volunteering Through the Years: Judy Valasky
April 22, 2020 Volunteers

We are so grateful for the volunteers who have made our work at MOM possible for 40 years. To celebrate MOM's 40th anniversary, we're sharing a few stories from some of our most dedicated long-time volunteers. Here are some of Judy Valasky's memories of volunteering at MOM:

I’ve been volunteering at MOM almost every Friday morning for twelve years. I was searching for a place to volunteer where I felt there was a strong need.  I tried several places but nothing seemed to fit my expectations. During a Lenten service at our church, a woman from MOM told us about Middleton Outreach Ministry. I called the next day and here I am!

I started in the old building as a client host. I loved meeting so many wonderful and grateful people. At that time, client hosts did the stocking of shelves which was becoming difficult for me so I trained as a front desk volunteer in the Distribution Center and that is where I’m still sitting.

I love the people, clients, staff and other volunteers.  I’ve seen executive directors, pantry managers, and other volunteers pass through the doors. Each one has brought something special to MOM.  I have developed meaningful friendships with people who have brought something special to my life.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who have made my Friday mornings something I look forward to each week!
