Volunteer of the Week
Durham Economic Resource Center (DERC)
Volunteer for 2 years
Retired from the healthcare industry, Francenia Shuler has become a fixture at the distribution center, volunteering to come in when she knows that someone will be working by him/herself. She helps out 5 days a week, 5 or more hours a day, assisting customers in the distribution center with merchandize selection and check-out. Shuler also provides instruction on warehouse procedures to trainees.
Jacqueline Brown, CEO of DERC, writes, “With her quiet demeanor and her warm smile, Ms. Shuler leads by example and sets a standard by which our program participants can follow.” She serves as an unofficial mentor to trainees by helping them become job ready and re-enforcing what they learn in the classroom.
Thank you Francenia Shuler for leading by example and caring for others!
