ALRSD Thrift Shop “Fabulous Finds” Presents:

Volunteer Corner

The Volunteer of the Month for March has been a member of our chapter since 2011.

When you hear her name you just smile because of her sunny smile and upbeat, positive, and caring nature. She is a strong asset to our chapter – very hardworking and dedicated.

She has served on the Board as the Corresponding secretary, sending cards and gifts, keeping our members informed about who could use well-wishes or sympathy. She has worked consistently at the shop and has been a day chair as well.

She has overseen the PREP program and during COVID she made sure that we have done everything possible to support the Head Start kids and the staff. She has a special relationship with PREP that goes beyond going into a volunteer.  She really cares and communicates with staff frequently.

She worked with the Head Start staff and Jill Ahearn to make sure that Bravo for Books was a great success. She coordinated everything from developing a list of preferred books, communicating the program to our members through Chapter Chatter and at our meetings, collecting/distributing the books during Action Week, and working with Marketing on the press release.

For Operation School Bell Marshalls – she single-handedly communicated with Marshalls and the Head Start staff to coordinate this project. As with everything she does, she has taken great care to make sure that no detail is left to chance.

Please join me in congratulating our March Volunteer of the Month – Suzie Perry!
