Alumna Manages Soup Kitchen Volunteers

Patti Bowers, BBA86, chokes up when she thinks about the people her volunteers help at The House with the Red Door. The volunteer coordinator began work there three years ago, serving soup to people who had just come into town, who were down on their luck or just wanted a safe place to mingle with others. And she's recently handed over the job to Lindsay Breece, who stopped by "The House" seeking help with her resume and became involved in helping. "You volunteer, you think you're giving," Bowers said. "You are giving, but you're getting so much more back." Bowers has a marketing degree from the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. The Daily News is based in Breckinridge, Colo.
