Madeline Webber is a junior majoring in Social Work at Western Illinois University. She recently made headlines for her service to Loaves and Fishes in Naperville, Illinois.
Madeline is the youngest of five daughters, and when she was younger she remembers having benefited from the services of Loaves and Fishes. Madeline says she had begun volunteer hours at her school Health office but needed a place to continue during the summer. Her first thought was Loaves and Fishes. She had never forgotten the help her family received from them when she was younger, and she has always remained grateful. She believed there was no better place to dedicate her time than the place that had served her and her family years ago.
Madeline says her experience was fun, the atmosphere was very welcoming, and that the people were so happy. She plans to do more volunteer work in the future, and hopes to further her experience in Social Work in Colorado after graduation. She isn’t sure where she wants to focus her degree exactly but she hopes to help those with addictions, or in a hospital or school setting.
