Who has the bigger heart?

Edward Morgan, director of Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen, wanted to show his gratitude, along with that of the Advisory Board and parish, to the volunteers that make the soup kitchen an impactful operation. So he organized a volunteer banquet at Club Monarch May 17, 2019.

Nearly 100 volunteers showed up. And they instead thanked Ed.

Terry Decker, who volunteers with her husband Bob on Wednesdays and Fridays, took to the podium and announced that the volunteers were presenting Ed with a proclamation, titled, “Ed Morgan, the Man with the Biggest Heart!”

Terry read the proclamation, which said, in part:

“Thank you for making such a wonderful difference in the lives of the people you meet and provide services to in our community.

“It is our honor to work alongside you as you work tirelessly to help the less fortunate, providing meals for them seven days a week.

“Even when you could relax with friends and family, you sacrifice your time and energy…

“What a tremendous asset you are to our community and to all of us who work with you!”

Later in the evening, when this “man with the biggest heart” shared that he would need to trim his hours for a while as he deals with a health issue, but that he would remain as director, the volunteers jumped to their feet and gave him a standing ovation.
