Leanne Thompson: Volunteer of the Month

April 2022 Volunteer of the Month

Congratulations to Leanne Thompson, Colorado Springs meal delivery driver and distribution assistant. Leanne was nominated by Volunteer Resources Coordinator Tiana Clark. Here’s what Tiana had to say about Leanne:

Leanne started volunteering with her daughter Jenna as a meal delivery driver nearly three years ago. In fact, she was in my first volunteer orientation when I started at Project Angel Heart. In addition to delivering, Leanne soon thereafter organized a cereal drive for us.

Leanne brings an energetic attitude every time she volunteers and is always willing to help in any area needed. In 2021, Leanne had a temporary schedule change that overlapped deliveries. She wanted to continue volunteering and decided to try Saturday morning distribution. She jumped right in and quickly understood even the smallest details of the distribution process.

Now, Leanne frequently volunteers for both distribution and meal deliveries several weekends per month.  She is always willing to be a backup volunteer if we need an extra hand. Leanne is so dependable and helps in any circumstance. Earlier this year, she had an early morning commitment in Denver before our 8am distribution start time. She drove to Denver and back to Colorado Springs, in the snow, ensuring she arrived in time for her volunteer shift. Leanne is such a pleasure to work with and her upbeat manner is contagious among the volunteer crew!

Thank you, Leanne!
