King 5 “SuperMom” nominee… our own Marla Whitmer. She has our vote!

For every muffin munched, every lavish lunch, every cup of coffee chugged and every hand-delivered treat to the volunteers on the Jacob’s Well construction site, we have Marla Whitmer to thank. Marla and her crew of over 50 hospitality volunteers have provided lunch, snacks, drinks and coffee to over 400 volunteers working on a project in Shoreline to bring safe housing and services to homeless single mothers and their children.

Marla’s commitment to the community and her dedicated volunteer service has caught the eye of King 5’s morning show New Day Northwest. She is one of 10 community leaders nominated for their SuperMom contest. She has our vote and we hope she has yours too! If Marla wins, Jacob’s Well receives a $500 contribution in her name and Marla receives a very well deserved day at the spa!

“We could not do this without Marla,” commented Susan Camerer, Vision House Executive Director. “Her support has been critical to keeping the construction volunteers feeling appreciated and coming back. One volunteer commented that this was the only construction site you could actually GAIN weight on!”  The first meal Marla provided was on May 15, 2010 and she just hasn’t stopped. She has been a faithful and steadfast supporter, committed to helping homeless kids.

Here is the link to vote for Marla!
