Each week we feature a member of our community and how they give back. When we saw that this Saturday’s Queen B, Amy, participated in a ‘Chocholics for Charity’ event we knew that we had to share her story with you. It reminded us that there is no greater ‘rush’ than giving of yourself in a way that helps someone else.

Of course, what makes Amy extraordinary is that she gives back in so many different ways. As she wrote, “If they need a volunteer for something, I’m there!”

Here is Amy’s story:

“I deliver Meals on Wheels twice per month to local residents and shut-ins, and I coordinate 60+ volunteers from my office to deliver meals the other days of the month I am not available to do so.”

“I volunteer for an average of three (3) events per year for Treasured Chests, which rasies money to fight breast cancer in the Minneapolis/ St Paul area. Anytime the National Bone Marrow Registry has a recrtuitment event (such as at Twinsfest 2010), I staff booths, hand out literature and do whatever other miscellaneous tasks they need done (my brother-in-law is the National Volunteer coordinator for that organization).”

“I am signed up to work with Chocoholics for Charity this year, which is debuting for the first time in Minneapolis this year; for the last two years and this coming year I willl be working with St Baldricks Foundation to raise money for children’s cancer research; this event is held around St Patrick’s Day. I have also volunteered with the Alzheimer’s Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, NHL All Star Game, Republican National Convention 2008 and the Burnet Senior Classic, to name just a few.”

“If they need a volunteer for something, I’m there!”

Tell us what you do to give back.
