Mazel Tov: Marsha Jacobs Freudenburg

This native Atlantan was chosen as volunteer of the month by American Cancer Society Hope Lodge.

Marsha Freudenburg is American Cancer Society Hope Lodge of Charleston, S.C., volunteer of the month for September.

She is a native Atlantan and daughter of Kitty and the late Harris Jacobs, and wife of Larry Freudenburg. She has been a proud volunteer in the Charleston Jewish community, Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital, and more recently, at the Charleston Hope Lodge. It was founded in 1970 by her husband’s grandmother, Margot Freudenberg. Margot was a Holocaust survivor who shared the same values that Marsha learned from her family in Atlanta. Because of Margot’s vision, there are 35 American Cancer Society Hope lodges in the continental U.S., Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

Marsha and her husband, Larry, are proudly continuing Margot’s legacy. “We owe this country so much and giving back is essential,” Marsha said.
