THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, February 1, 2019 Page 3 Patty Kelly is taking on a new challenge as director of development for Bread of Life By Barbara Taormina P atty Kelly is a familiar face around Malden. Former classmates probably remember her from their years at Malden High School and her more recent role with the MHS Alumni Association. Some people might recall that she booked their family vacation back in her days as a travel agent. The business community knows her as a former president and an advisory board member of the Malden Chamber of Commerce. Scores of people know her from the 10 years she served as director of community engagement for Housing Families. Starting next week, Malden can get to know Kelly all over again in her new role as director of development for Bread of Life, a faith-based nonprofit organization that provides food, comfort and spiritual support to those in need in Malden and surrounding communities. “Bread of Life is a true gem in Malden,” said Kelly. “The mission is so compelling: food for the body, nurturing for the soul.” Kelly said part of what drew her to her new job was hearing Bread of Life’s Executive Director Gabriella Snyder Stelmack talk about her passion for the organization, its mission and its overarching goal of promoting peace and justice by alleviating hunger, poverty and need. “I’m here to support Gabriella and I think we’ll be the dynamic duo,” she said. While Kelly acknowledged Malden resident Patty Kelly is the new director of development for Bread of Life. (Courtesy Photo) DIRECTOR | SEE PAGE 11 THANK YOU!
