Congrats to Ceci Carter for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Families Forward
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Ceci Carter has been an invaluable volunteer with Families Forward the past several years. She has been serving as our Food Drive Coordinator since 2011. There is a tremendous amount of detail and coordination involved in managing our food drives, and Ceci consistently goes the “extra mile” in her role as Food Drive Coordinator. Her role involves outreach work in which she communicates with many different parties, including schools, corporations, faith-based organizations, and local municipalities. Ceci’s diligent work ethic and friendly and professional demeanor has ultimately resulted in on-going partnerships in the community.
In the past, we had a Families Forward staff member perform the role of Food Drive Coordinator. Ever since Ceci offered to assist Families Forward in this capacity, it has been a great help. Having her in this role has allowed other Families Forward staff members the opportunity to focus on other areas. Serving as our Food Drive Coordinator is quite a responsibility, as her work and communication with groups collecting food for Families Forward results in a continuous influx of food that fills our pantry shelves and allows Families Forward to feed our community. Her work directly supports our ability to achieve our mission. We greatly value Ceci, her hard work, and her unrelenting dedication to Families Forward. Ceci truly understands our values and the mission of Families Forward. Our food program is successful in feeding hundreds of families each year because of Ceci’s service. We don’t know where we would be without her today!
