Muffin Lady, Kathy Shortt

ehm volunteer and donor

They call me the Muffin Lady.

Each Tuesday, I spend the day at home baking muffins – zucchini/pineapple, banana, chocolate. On Wednesdays, I get up before the crack of dawn, pack up 11 dozen muffins and serve them along with the hot breakfast ehm offers to guests at the Drop-In centre. I lost my dad when I was five years old and unfortunately, I know what it’s like to live in poverty. While I don’t know what challenges the guests at ehm’s Drop-In Centre are living with, I do know that many have endured great hardship. And while a muffin won’t make that go away, it’s a small part of ehm’s bigger effort to create safe space.

Each week that I volunteer, I see the difference ehm makes in the lives of people living with homelessness, poverty and isolation. ehm is an oasis of safety and calm where they can make connections and see hope for healing and renewal. I hope you’ll make a donation right now by clicking here to support folks in their journey to rebuild their lives. And please consider making a monthly donation. It helps ehm to know they can count on you – the way so many people count on ehm.

With thanks,

Kathy Shortt
