Volunteer Spotlight: The Armstrongs

Leslie Rankins and her husband, Marcell Armstrong, are long-time friends of SOME, volunteering and recruiting others to give their time as well. Leslie, Marcell, and their son, Trenton, are regular volunteers in SOME's Dining Room, coming in to help out our staff once a week since 2015.

 

The family's favorite part about volunteering is interacting with our dining room guests. They hope that everyone they serve feels welcomed, loved, and seen. Said Marcell, "I don't call it giving back. I call it serving the Lord and that's something I've always wanted to do."

 

In addition to her volunteer hours with her family, Leslie brings in her middle school students to help as well. "giving is free," said Leslie. "There is always someone worse off, but we have an opportunity to help make their lives better."

 

Volunteers like the Armstrongs are the backbone of SOME. We rely on their dedication to successfully serve our guests. Thank you!
