VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: August, 2018
Americorps VISTA, Hall Hunger Initiative
Terri Wehrley-Pyles LIVES UNITED by “using connections to open opportunities” as she engages the community on hunger-related issues as an Americorps VISTA with the Hall Hunger Initiative. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Terri as our Community Volunteer of the Month.
From Darke County, Terri has lived in Montgomery and Greene counties, moving back to Darke County to care for her parents. She has an “amazing” son who is spending his summer lifeguarding. Terri first got involved with United Way when she was a social worker; she did not know when she applied as an Americorps VISTA that her assignment would be Hall Hunger Initiative (HHI), working on food security efforts in the area, but she has loved the work. And she has long volunteered: “It’s always been something – 4H, camp, church, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, pantries, parks…”
Terri says of the work: “When we go to a mass food distribution, it’s an opportunity to engage with people, and I walk away with a serving high!” She also enjoys meeting with agencies and organizations and “turning ideas into action.” She remains engaged with hunger-related causes and looks forward to using the knowledge she’s acquired with HHI to help in Darke County.
HHI manager Etana Jacobi says “Terri’s passion and commitment to service are palpable in all that she does. HHI is deeply grateful for her dedication and service to our community through the Americorps VISTA program.”
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Terri Wehrley-Pyles as our Community Volunteer of the Month for August, 2018.
