Angela Ryan, a morning food pantry volunteer and seasonal program helper, was nominated for her consistent willingness to go the extra mile.
Alongside preparing grocery orders for clients, Angela has also volunteered with several of our seasonal programs. This summer, she organized and separated supplies for Interfaith’s Backpack Program, which this year distributed backpacks and school supplies to more than 600 local children. She is also currently part of the team sorting and preparing costumes for our Halloween Costume Program, which will provide costumes to hundreds of children in need later this month.
Eileen had this to say about Angela:
“Angela has just been a delight to work with and is more than a valuable addition to our wonderful team of volunteers. She arrives every day with a generous smile, upbeat attitude, ready joke, a willingness to do whatever task needs to be done and that charming Scottish brogue is a winner.
We have had some staffing challenges over the course of Angela’s time with us – what with vacations, work, school and family commitments. Every time we have put out a call for help with staffing Angela has been there. Thank you Angela!”
