Volunteer of the month:
Meet our volunteer of the month, Lisa Crawford!
Lisa is an employee with Miles for Smiles in Bolivar and began volunteering at COM during the start of the COVID-19 crisis. During the quarantine, Miles for Smiles could only use limited staff in their own offices, but continued to pay the rest of their employees and assigned them to help out other agencies in the community. We were fortunate to have several Miles for Smiles employees, including Lisa.
Lisa began by helping COM answer our phone and do office work. However, she always went above and beyond and was also a tremendous help in sorting clothes and donations for our thrift store and bagging food for our drive-thru food pantry. She is always eager to help out wherever she can.
Even though Lisa is back to work at the Miles for Smiles mobile unit now, she still believes in COM's mission. "I was amazed by the quality and variety of food that COM offers through their pantry. I didn't realize that before volunteering, but it's awesome," Lisa observed.
When not at Miles for Smiles or at COM, Lisa enjoys spending time with her grandkids, camping, and managing her fairy garden.
Thank-you, Lisa & Miles for Smiles!
