TGIT: Thank Goodness It’s Thursday!

Categories: Feedback, Success Stories | Tags:

“So when will we see you in the center next?” I asked a guest Wednesday evening.

“Hmm… tomorrow is Thursday. Pat comes on Thursday. I’ll see you tomorrow!”

Many of our guests look forward to Thursdays for the same reason: Pat Davies, sandwich donor extraordinaire. Everyone enjoys the array of food Pat brings– two kinds of sandwiches (pb&j or turkey and cheese), grapes, clementines, and assorted baked goods– but what makes us all so happy to see Pat is her desire to spend a few minutes in the center to see how everyone is doing.

Pat and her helpers (fellow parishioners of Georgetown Presbyterian Church) distribute their sandwiches and greet our guests by name. She listens– really listens– to the answer when she asks, “How are you doing?”

When I asked a few people why they like Pat, many stated that they like being able to thank her in person for the sandwiches. This sentiment is echoed generally as well; a few guests have approached me and said they wish they could meet the sandwich donors in order to thank them.

If you are a sandwich donor and have a few minutes to spare, feel free to stay and chat with our amazing guests. They want to tell you for themselves how much your sandwiches are appreciated.
