As we open our doors and welcome back most of our volunteers to the center, we’d like to give special kudos to another volunteer who has been here during the shutdown. Rudy, has been coming in to help out with the Walmart Food Program, helping to set up, organizes, and distribute the food. However, before he does that he come in and helps us to spruce up the outside. He cleans up the outside, sweeping, blowing, and watering the garden. He also and makes sure the birds are fed. He has our unofficial groundskeeper this since before the shutdown. Originally from Puebla, Mexico, he came up to the United States for a job back in 2002, where he worked for UPS, Sketchers, and Star Refrigeration, before retiring last year. He still has two homes in Mexico and goes back every year for vacation, where he also volunteers his time as a groundskeeper at local plaza and parks. Rudy is married to Mary (aka: Cuca), and has two sons and two granddaughters. Thanks Rudy for making sure our members come to a clean environment.
