HighPoint runs on volunteers, whether they serve directly with clients or behind the scenes. Mary Kolb works in HighPoint’s office, doing “Whatever needs to be done with clerical, outreach, networking, connecting services, or picking up produce and clothes.”
When HighPoint moved locations from Crestwood to LaGrange in 2017, Mary offered the use of her truck and trailer to help the move. After that, she started volunteering in the clothes closet and client resources. She’s been helping with a variety of jobs in the office ever since. Mary currently serves as our Resource Coordinator. She networks with other local service providers to ensure that HighPoint is able to refer clients to other ministries designed to meet their needs.
When asked what her favorite thing about serving at HighPoint is, Mary said: “I love meeting all the volunteers who allow God to work with their skills and gifts to bless the people we serve. I also love how God can take a tiny step and turn a smile into a relationship with client who needs to be loved. So many people feel alone in our community and we can make a difference in their lives by letting them see God’s love through us.”
