Periodically the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland recognizes individuals who go above and beyond in helping make our community a better place for everyone. This time the club was particularly pleased to recognize one of their own members, Mark Tillman.
Since 2008, Mark has assumed overall responsibility for the KITH Community Suppers which are held every Tuesday evening at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Kirkland. Each week throughout the year, Mark coordinates and oversees various church groups and other organizations who volunteer to provide nutritious meals for less fortunate families in Kirkland.
In addition to providing wholesome food, the community suppers periodically include activities for children and young people, including back-to-school assistance, as well as an annual Christmas program.
It's a real credit to Mark that he makes the time and puts in the effort --- week after week --- to ensure that those less fortunate have at least one bright, happy moment of enjoyment in their week.
Mark Tillman is truly an Everyday Hero.
KITH stands for Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing, and has been helping families on the greater eastside since 1989. For more information on KITH, you can visit their website at: http://www.kithcares.org/index.htm or contact the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland at Kirkland.kiwanis.org.
