BROOKINGS – The Helpline Center recently announced that David Clark was named the January 2020 Volunteer of the Month, an area-wide award program sponsored by the Helpline Center and First Bank & Trust.

Clark is an energetic, heart-driven, tireless volunteer who gives of himself continuously to help those in need whether they need a meal, bed, wheelchair, or a lending hand. 

His heart leads his mission of stewardship, dedicating his life to being a worker, a leader, and truly a great example of what it means to lend a hand to anyone who needs help in any way. Clark’s example is unending, from making wheelchair parts for Hope Haven International, to building beds for Sleep in Heavenly Peace, volunteering at the Harvest Table, Beacon Hill Rifle and Pistol Club, Outdoor Adventure Center, area churches, and several more organizations over the years.  

Clark has been doing some type of volunteering and helping his entire life and has dedication that doesn’t quit. Clark has a heart for ministries, from helping to feed people, to helping kids sleep in their own bed, making it possible for people to have the mobility of being in a much-needed wheelchair, to generally being an integral part of countless other churches and civic organizations.

He’s a person who is behind-the-scenes, behind-the-cameras, and who demonstrates a kind and passionate heart for helping others.
