It was a little over a decade ago when my wife and I experienced an awakening. For the first time in our lives we captured a glimpse of what it was like behind the scenes in the restaurant and service industry. As a result, we made the decision to do something about it. In the weeks that followed I expressed this to a friend who said, “Have you heard of Big Table?” And the rest, they say, is history. I fell in love with the heart and hope of this organization.
Therefore, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to say thank you for supporting Big Table through generous contributions of time and finances. I confidently speak on behalf of the board in saying that we take the responsibility of stewarding these resources seriously. Big Table is on the move. As you’ve already likely witnessed, the dream and desire of the Big Table team to change the trajectory of lives in this industry is coming to fruition. We not simply expanded our scope of care, but the cities in which we offer that care. We are continuing to dream about where we might go next and we are leaning into God’s call to care for others. And, let me just say, we have big dreams for Big Table. We are committed to being strategic and thoughtful with our decisions and we want to remain steadfast in and focused on the specific calling that we have as an organization, leveraging your donations for maximum impact. I am humbled and privileged to serve as the Big Table chair, and I thank you for joining us in this great work.
