This month we’d like to shine the light on one of our newer volunteers around here. Leona Fowler, one of our Thrift Store volunteers. Once a week Leona comes in to sort, clean, price, and then sell items in our store. Leona has been only been volunteering for the past 6 months, but has proven herself to be a hardworking salesperson. In fact when we had our Extravaganza Sale the end totals came to $180! Not bad for 50 cent to $2 items! Leona came to us after retiring from the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where she worked for over 32 years. After slowing down she went to visit her sister and overheard someone talking about the Highland Senior Center. She came and checked us out and liked what she saw. Then while attending the Food Program, she heard an announcement asking for volunteers. She turned in her paperwork, and the very next day she was volunteering in the Thrift Store! Born and raised here in Highland, her and her husband Mike and three sons together. No grandkids yet, but Leona has her fingers crossed! We would like to thank Leona all her hard work.
