BROOKINGS – The Helpline Center recently announced that Angie Daly was named the September 2018 Volunteer of the Month, an area-wide award program sponsored by the Helpline Center.
There to honor and thank Daly were the Rev. Wade Miller, lead pastor at Brookings First United Methodist Church; Keith Corbett, mayor of Brookings; Sarah Lippert, volunteer connections coordinator at Helpline Center; and numerous congregation members at Brookings First United Methodist Church.
Daly has been very active in helping plan and coordinate special events and the church’s weekly worship meal. This June, she helped lead the “Pie and Lattes” Neighborhood Block Party with homemade pie, music, fun and games for over 100 church members and friends.
Through the school year, Daly has been very helpful in coordinating the church’s volunteers and working with its part-time cook to feed 150 youth and their families every Wednesday. She has been instrumental in setting up, working with volunteers, serving, and doing everything necessary to make sure our families have a place each week to sit around the table together, share in worship and fellowship with friends and other church families, and catch their breath with a nutritious but simple meal.
“Angie has a great personality and spirit. She volunteers where she can, tells us “no” when she can’t, and always has a glad heart. We are truly blessed to have her be a part of our church family,” said Miller.
For information on volunteer opportunities or the Volunteer of the Month program, contact Lippert at [email protected] or call 211 for more information.
