Volunteer Spotlight: The Williams Family & Friends

Sharon Williams, along with a group of her family and friends, has served meals at Calvary since 2012 and now serves on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Sharon’s consistent meal service once per month benefits Calvary both because it’s valuable to have consistency in scheduling, but more importantly because women who live at Calvary love to see familiar faces month after month.

Sharon’s group’s consistency is appreciated by Calvary residents and staff alike, and we’re proud to highlight her group as this month’s volunteer spotlight. Get to know more about Sharon’s story below.
