Rev. Pat Bruger began her journey as an advocate and leader for the hungry in 1991, when she became only the second paid Executive Director in CUMAC’s history. This week, after 26 years of feeding people & changing lives, Pat is retiring from that position. While Pat will certainly be missed, she's developed a strong foundation for CUMAC, and our team is prepared to take the organization into the future.
To honor Pat and her incredible career, our staff surprised her this week with a special farewell celebration full of pizza, ice cream and lots of love. It was the least we could do for a leader that has done so much for our staff and community.
Pat, words can’t express what you mean to CUMAC. Your hard work and dedication have helped provide millions of meals for the hungry and changed countless lives — ours included. Thank you for your leadership and for turning CUMAC into the organization it is today!
