Burke is the founder and executive director of Visions Vessels & Victory, a nonprofit food pantry operating out of Appcon Lumber Co. that runs entirely off of donations from the public.
Burke and a number of volunteers, hands out food to hundreds of needy families every month and also delivers boxes of food to the elderly and other people who don't have the means to pick it up on their own.
Burke was once in the same position as the people she now helps.
A divorce in the early 1990's left her a single mother raising two children on a tiny budget, and she suddenly found herself struggling to keep her family fed and clothed.
Burke remains humble about her contributions and the program, "The vision was God's, we are the vessels, but the victory is all his."
