If you ask me, when you look up the word superwoman in the dictionary, you will find a picture of Kendall Bennett.

Lucky for us, Kendall moved to Chicago last year from Charleston. She landed a job at Art Smith’s Table 52 where she learned about Common Threads. Kendall quickly signed up to volunteer on Wednesdays. We were honored to have her and things kept getting better. Soon she was bringing friends to class and brought fellow employees from Table 52 to help out.

She volunteers each Wednesday at Kennedy King College. It is her day off and she comes to the kitchen to “travel” with the kids. She is fun, strict, easy going and an amazing person for the kids to spend time with. In addition to her Wednesday afternoon commitment to our kids, she volunteers most Fridays at our field trips. We love that she introduces new people to Common Threads. It is priceless.

We are so proud to have Kendall as a volunteer with Common Threads and cannot thank her enough for her commitment to our program.
