GREENFIELD — Sitting in a spacious, sunshine-yellow office, Jill Ebbert cannot contain her grin.
The executive director of the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen has good reason to be happy.
For starters, the office is brand new and about twice the size of her old hole in the wall that overlooked the soup kitchen’s perpetually bustling dining room.
But for Ebbert, the office is really just the icing on the cake. In less than six months, the once-struggling nonprofit has not just met, but exceeded its $75,000 fundraising goal and completed much-needed renovations that have nearly doubled the organization’s available space.
“It doesn’t look like a used appliance store anymore,” Ebbert said Monday, laughing.
