ALRSD Thrift Shop “Fabulous Finds” Presents:

Volunteer Corner

Volunteer of the Year 2023 – 2024

This year’s Volunteer of the Year Award goes to two ALRSD Members; Suzie Perry and Pam Pacilio.

Pam and Suzie work together and independently on various programs to make a very positive impact on ALRSD.  Pam and Suzie are all about “community service and helping others in need”.

Suzie has been in charge of the PREP program for a number of years.  It is her “baby”, she treats it with love and care.  Suzie has established a great working relationship between ALRSD and St. Leo’s Preschool. Suzie has also worked on “Bravo for Books”.  She takes great care in selecting the perfect books for a variety of children.

Suzie has worked with the Membership Committee as the coordinator for the Mentor program. Again, Suzie’s hard work has added to our new member integration and retention.

Pam is involved in a variety of ALRSD programs.  She has worked on the fundraiser committee, assisted with the ASK program, helped with the distribution of Bears, volunteered for ‘Seeds of Hope’ and has recorded the volunteer hours for the membership.  Pam volunteers almost every Monday for PREP and has taken the position of co-chairman when needed.

Pam and Suzie work together to select and create the lessons for PREP.

Pam has worked for OSB Marshalls, Target and Pendleton.  Pam has been the Chairperson for OSB Pendleton since 2020.  Her organization is the awe of many.

Not only do Pam and Suzie have an excellent working relationship, but they are the best of friends.

They exemplify what ALRSD is all about — “Service and Friendship.”
