Volunteer Corner:
Shirley Garlington

Volunteer of the Quarter

The Arkansas Foodbank Development team has nominated Ms. Shirley Garlington for Volunteer of the Quarter. Ms. Garlington done a wonderful job with the holiday tribute cards. She wrote 536 cards over the course of the holiday season, completing 70 volunteer hours, all with a smile and an eagerness to give back in whatever way she could. Even as the holiday tribute card project came to a close, Shirley continued to volunteer by folding hundreds of letters. The Development team is so grateful for Shirley’s commitment to the Foodbank and would not have survived the busy holiday season without her!
