We are grateful to each and every one of our volunteer heroes who go out of their way to serve our seniors. Each quarter we recognize those who have gone above and beyond for us and those we are here to serve.
Volunteer Appreciation Curbside Deliveries
In December we revamped our usual Volunteer Appreciation ceremony due to COVID. Instead of a banquet, we had the privilege of doing curbside deliveries for our yearly award winners for 2020. During this unprecedented and difficult year, they came through in BIG ways! Thank you to all who have served our seniors through COVID and beyond!
2021 3rd Quarter Awards
Each of these volunteers received a $30 HEB Gas Card!
Growing - Most rides taken - Tricia Elliott
Going - Most Care Calls - Angela Parsons
Giving - Volunteer Who Gives Back by Assisting FIAG - Becky Lanclos
Tricia Elliott has been volunteering with FIAG for almost two years now. She came to us right before COVID, but hit the ground running again this past July. She likes to keep her drives local to Georgetown or Round Rock but will often drive multiple times a week! Tricia, thank you for your 39 rides this quarter and continuing to serve our seniors!
Angela Parsons - Angela has been with FIAG since the end of 2017. She is a part time science instructor at a local university. Angela was looking for a flexible volunteer experience that would fit into her busy schedule when she came upon FIAG. She was a driver, but since COVID, she has been making care calls and formed a wonderful relationship with her buddy. Angela, I know your buddy has appreciated the 24 calls that you have made to her this quarter. Thank you!
Becky Lanclos - This award goes to a volunteer that gives back to FIAG in multiple ways. Becky has been a jack of all trades volunteer with FIAG since 2016! She is always willing to help out in the office and has made such beautiful charcuterie boards for some of this year's special events. While helping in the office a few times a month, she still managed to take 25 drives this quarter! Becky, thank you for going above and beyond for Faith in Action. You are always such a joy when you come into the office and you brighten our Georgetown seniors' day.
GOING THE DISTANCE!
Congratulations to Martha Castro who was the random drawing winner for the long range drives into Austin, Cedar Park or Temple within the 3rd Quarter! Martha has been volunteering with FIAG for two years now. She enjoys taking drives into Austin. Thank you for your flexibility to drive outside of Georgetown!
