Volunteer Spotlight: Meet Susan Durand

Meet Susan Durand, our April Spotlight Volunteer. Many of you might not be familiar with Susan, she bakes and decorates the graduation cakes for Matt Talbot’s Life Skills classes. Susan is a native Nebraskan, has been married to her husband David for 34 years and has one son, Richard. Susan learned about Matt Talbot when she attended an information meeting at St. Marks UMC. During the meeting they mentioned that Matt Talbot was looking for someone to make the cakes for their Life Skills classes. Susan enjoys volunteering and helping people. She has always tried to do various volunteer jobs to meet new people and for the feeling it brings by helping people. This opportunity allows her to practice new decorating techniques and keeps her old ones sharp! Susan’s favorite thing about volunteering at Matt Talbot is how appreciative everyone is. Everyone is so polite and thankful no matter what the size of the job is you’ve done. Susan loves working with Glenn Schawang, Outreach Specialist, “he is wonderful to work with”.
