Donor Appreciation Spotlight: Leanne Mruzik

Posted by | Catholic Charities of Oregon

We are fortunate to have extremely generous donors and volunteers who give their time, energy, support and resources to Catholic Charities. As part of our donor and volunteer appreciation campaign, we are recognizing individuals and organizations who share God’s love and spread Christ’s light by partnering with Catholic Charities. Because of them, we are able to bring vital, lifesaving services to our neighbors in greatest need. Here’s Leanne Mruzik’s story:

Leanne (pictured above left) has been volunteering with the Kenton Women’s Village for the past two years with the goal of bringing awareness to the villagers about gardening and teaching them what it takes to grow their own food. Click the video below to watch Leanne talk about her passion for gardening and reducing food insecurity at the village. Here her explain why volunteering is so important and how it allows her to reach out, and make a difference in the lives of others.

 

Thank you, Leanne. At Catholic Charities of Oregon, we wouldn’t be able to deliver life-saving services to those in greatest need without people like you. You #Inspire Us.
