As we make our way through National Volunteer Week, The Salvation Army wanted to spotlight various individuals and groups who give of themselves selflessly to the cause. Today we recognize Lesli Hunter, long-time disaster services volunteer and former warehouse coordinator for The Salvation Army in Lawrenceville. Lesli started volunteering at The Salvation Army during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. She was recognized for her great organizational skills and asked to run the warehouse.
Ever since 2005, Lesli has dedicated her time to helping people in need during disasters. She has volunteered on The Salvation Army canteens (mobile feeding unit) on several different occasions and even drove to Pennsylvania to help feed people in need during Hurricane Irene.
“I volunteer with The Salvation Army because I love working with people and helping them through the rough times,” said Lesli. She says that her favorite volunteering moment was working the Hurricane Katrina disaster. “I was given the responsibility to organize all the items being donated and loved every minute of it,” she added.
Today we honor Lesli Hunter for dedicating her time, talent, and treasure to benefit The Salvation Army!
