Leading with a passion and serving with a purpose—it’s time to submit your nominations for this year’s Myrtie Davis Lifetime Volunteer Servant Leadership Award.
The Myrtie Davis Lifetime Volunteer Servant Leadership Award was established in 2017 to honor a long-time volunteer for selfless commitment to Samaritan Ministries and our guests. The award is meant to be an encouragement to all of us to act on the words of Jesus in Matthew 25. The Award should inspire others to give of their time, talent, and resources to help the hungry and homeless of our community.
Myrtie Davis began volunteering at Samaritan Ministries in the Soup Kitchen in 1981 and served faithfully on the Monday team for over 20 years. The inspiration for her service comes from Jesus. She always puts Samaritan’s guests first, serving with humility and empathy. She is known throughout the community as an intentional listener and prayer partner. We are grateful for her love, support, and dedication towards Samaritan Ministries and our guests.
