My name is Susan Schmidt and I recently retired from an incredible career in the Pembina Trails School Division. Once I retired I wanted to become involved in an organization that cares for our most vulnerable population. Oak Table gives all Winnipegers a place to belong and feel appreciated.
The mission and values of Oak Table spoke to me, and I became a volunteer along with my husband at the drop-in. I soon became a member of the Fundraising Event Committee, and more recently a member of the Board.
I am proud to be associated with Oak Table, and want to invest in its success. That is why I recently became a monthly donor. I understand how important regular, predictable givings are to a small non-profit, and I wanted my donation to give them that stability.
Oak Table is a wonderful place that creates a safe, caring and inclusive community. It is a great place to volunteer, and gives me the flexibility to contribute in a variety of ways. Volunteering here meets my desire to give back to my community, participate in something worthwhile, and to make a difference!
