NAM celebrates volunteers at annual luncheon
Press Release

April, 2009

Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) honored its volunteers Thursday, April 16 at its Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon, held at the Cultural Hall of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

 

NAM is a nonprofit, community-based, multi-program social service agency that strives to supply basic human needs through neighbors helping neighbors. With a relatively small staff of only 85 employees, the organization relies heavily on its approximately 2,000 active volunteers.

 

NAM President and CEO, Carole Little, thanked the volunteers and emphasized their importance in the day-to-day existence of the organization. NAM Executive Board Vice Chairman, Harlan Martens, led the invocation.

 

The Asian-themed event featured a lunch generously donated by Shirley Acres and centerpieces provided by Ten Thousand Villages in Rice Village, a nonprofit fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted items. Entertainment included Latin ballroom dancers Nicole Comer and Treveon Roseberry in addition to the singing group known as the Men of Leisure.

 

Event sponsors were the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Hasta La Pasta, H.E.B., Kolache Factory Vintage Park, Lifetime Fitness, My Le Restaurant, National Charity League Cypress Creek, National Charity League Cypress Belles, Shirley Acres Catering & the Lodge Restaurant, Spring Creek Barbeque, Ten Thousand Villages, and The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.

 

The federal government assigns a dollar value to volunteer hours, and NAM’s volunteers contribute more than $1 million worth of service annually.

 

To learn more about volunteering at NAM, community members should contact Volunteer Coordinator Linda Fullerton at 281-885-4609 or lfullerton@namonline.org.
