Eight years ago Gwen Marshall was studying for her realtor’s license and had plans to save money for her dream home. Then she volunteered to help at Columbia County Cares food pantry and her plans changed.
“I told my husband I’m not being called to be a realtor, I’m being called to help these people” said Marshall. Today she still lives in their double-wide trailer but she is okay with that.
“Because of what I do here, I lay my head down on my pillow at night knowing that someone had a meal,” said Marshall, “That is what sets my heart on fire.”
