Volunteer of the Month
Mary Ellen is a star volunteer. She not only is our fastest packer by far, but also does not double but triple duty is packing 2 days a week and prepping on Wednesday on top of that.
She is always up for helping others, training new volunteers, and giving everyone tips on how quick she is.
Many times she’s done a double shift covering for a no show.
We could not have a better Volunteer of the Month!! THANK YOU Mary Ellen!
