April is National Volunteer Month and SCAC took the opportunity to recognize two of its chief volunteers.
Shelley Hoy and Heather Gosselin were presented with proclamations by both Springboro City Council and the Clearcreek Township Trustees in recognition of their outstanding service to the community.
“They are two amazing volunteers at the SCAC,” said Executive Director Wendy Ford. “They spend countless hours serving our community.”
Shelley leads the SCAC’s relationship with Shared Harvest, administers the backpack program and coordinates food drives.
Heather has created and maintains an inventory control system that makes sure no donation is wasted. She also manages hundreds of volunteers every year.
“Neither Shelley nor Heather hesitated or even blinked when the COVID-19 crisis caused demand for the SCAC services to quadruple in 2020 but increased their efforts, reached out to their contacts and made it their personal mission to enable the SCAC to keep up with the community’s needs,” the proclamations read.
The City’s proclamation was presented during it’s regular council meeting by Mayor John Agenbroad. Springboro City Manager Chris Pozzuto is president of the SCAC Board of Trustees.
Trustee Jason Gabbard presented the township’s proclamation at a reception for friends and family following the council meeting. He is vice president of the SCAC Board of Trustees.
