It has been my pleasure to serve you and our Redford Community, as RIR’s Executive Director, since 1998, the year we were founded! It is time for me to step down at the end of the year, to pursue other opportunities that God has instore for me. Many thanks to Teri Temby, our President of our Board of Directors. Teri will be managing the transition.
I am pleased to pass the torch to Natalie Emerick, as RIR’s Program Coordinator! We are blessed to have her at RIR.
She brings a wealth of knowledge, as a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s in Public Health. She has been working since June to bring many new opportunities, such as the grant for our new Walk-In Cooler, that should be installed by the end of the year! Thank you, Natalie!
Thank you, Mary Morrison for serving by my side all during COVID-19, as our Client Specialist! I could not have managed RIR and our clients, without Mary! She will continue to manage clients and provide them with great customer service, as always with Georgia Saarela and Mary Liggin’s help.
RIR is an awesome family of dedicated staff, faithful volunteers and a wise board of directors that will continue to support our mission to Feed Our Neighbors in Need! Thank you volunteers for being God’s hands and feet, reaching out to everyone that we serve with your friendly smiles and compassionate hearts, as Jesus said in Matthew 25.
Redford is an awesome community to be part of, with Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Need! I will miss all of you at RIR, but hope to see you all soon at RIR’s next event! Thank you for enriching my life in ways that you will never know! It has been my honor to serve with all of you!
Wishing you Merry Christmas & Safe New Year!
May God continue to Bless You!
In His Service,
I am the Executive Director at RIR, I will periodically be posting blogs to this page! I hope you enjoy!
