Congrats to Meg English for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Families Forward
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Meg English has been volunteering with Families Forward since 2002. She has been volunteering in our food pantry and helping with our Community Wide Food Drives for over 10 years! In 2008, she also volunteered to take on the responsibility of one of the most important and challenging volunteer roles that we have at Families Forward. Meg became the lead volunteer for our Thanksgiving program, one of our major seasonal programs and our biggest event serving families throughout the year.
Meg is the epitome of a dedicated volunteer, and we greatly value her and her hard work. Meg is a selfless individual who truly understands our values and the mission of Families Forward. She has a great grasp of how we aim to achieve our mission as well. Meg is a great leader and also understands the importance of teamwork. Every Monday she works with our volunteers to prepare food bags for our weekly food distribution to our clients. Additionally, she helps with maintaining and organizing the food pantry, which is quite an undertaking. Meg has a great sense of order and is always helping us to prepare for upcoming events. She is always full of ideas and suggestions as to how we can do things better and get more people involved with Families Forward. We wouldn’t be able to do everything without her help. She is a shining example of a valuable volunteer that deserves to be recognized. We don’t know where we would be without her today!
