We received the following information and photos from Flat River Outreach Ministries about their May volunteers of the month.
For May we want to recognize our Men’s and Women’s DIY Teams in Treasures Thrift Shop. These teams price, sort and stock our DIY rooms. This includes craft and hobby supplies such as sewing, knitting, stamping, scrap booking, etc. in the Women’s DIY and home improvement materials, tools, and more in the Men’s DIY.
John Rysdyk, Pete Wasciuk and, Don Holstine (pictured left to right, Don not in photo) are in charge of the Men’s DIY. Pete has been a volunteer since 2014, Don since 2015 and John since 2017. Pete enjoys volunteering because he likes helping the community and enjoys working with the other volunteers. John says he enjoys volunteering in this area because it’s in his background and has fun working with the other guys.
Marilyn Lambson and Ellen Lietzke (pictured left to right) are in charge of the Women’s DIY. Marilyn has been a volunteer since the beginning days of FROM and Ellen joined her in April 2017. They each volunteer two days a week and do a great job keeping everything stocked, priced and sorted. They are a wealth of knowledge about many different hobbies and crafts as they each enjoy spending time on their own hobbies when not volunteering.
Thank you to both our DIY teams for all the work you put into making these rooms a great place for people to shop. We love that you are able to turn your passions into a way to give back to our community and to help our neighbors in need.
