Congrats to Mary Bentley for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Laura’s House
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Mary Bentley has a huge heart for Laura’s House! In the 10 years that she has volunteered with us, she has generously given her time, talent and treasure at all of our sites, including the Emergency Shelter, our Corporate Offices and CRC. From serving as a Crisis Hotline volunteer, to landscaping and planting gardens at our Shelter, to preparing meals and donating food, toys and clothing, to assisting with creative special event ideas and holiday decorating, Mary has done it all! And, she often spends her own money to complete these projects. Recently, she saw a need for cabinets in our Shelter garage to store donated school and art supplies for the children of Laura’s House. She contacted a builder, had plans drawn up, submitted them for our approval, and then spent $1,500 of her own funds to complete the project. This is just one of the many examples of how Mary always motivated by her passion for Laura’s House and the clients we serve, truly giving selflessly. Mary’s bright disposition and willingness to assist in every aspect of the agency, makes her a standout volunteer, and she is never one to forget staff birthdays or milestones. Over the years, she has also recruited friends and family to donate their time, talent and treasures to Laura’s House. Those who have worked closely with Mary have said that she is one of the warmest and most generous people that you will ever meet…she has a heart of gold, and we can’t say enough nice things about her!
