VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: March 2018
Brunner Literacy Center
Betty Gallagher LIVES UNITED by “using her time and talent to help others!” as she volunteers with Brunner Literacy Center in Dayton. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Betty as our Community Volunteer of the Month.
Born in Northridge, Betty has lived in the Dayton area all her life. She is married and has twelve grandchildren, aged 2 – 18. A registered nurse, she retired from Good Samaritan but still works one day a week. She retired four years ago, but by September was ready to get back into life via volunteering. “I mean, how many drawers can you clean?,’ she says with a laugh. She knew of Brunner Literacy Center from friends who had volunteered there, and came on as a receptionist on Tuesdays (her husband volunteers at Brunner on Mondays). Four years later, she loves being “the first face people see” at the center. She is also active in her church (St Rita’s). “I wanted to give back…I have been truly blessed and never had the opportunity to teach , so I enjoy working with literacy. I talk about the center whenever I can, and tell folks about how rewarding the work is.” Between work, volunteering and watching a grandchild in Cincinnati one day a week, Betty’s retirement is action-packed!
Nilofer Ali, office coordinator at Brunner, says “Betty is definitely a ray of sunshine! One of our longest-standing and most reliable volunteers (of all our reliable volunteers!)”
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Betty Gallagher as our Community Volunteer of the Month for March, 2018.
