January Volunteer of the Month recognized in Sioux Empire

L to R: Miranda Brandt, MetaBank, January Volunteer of the Month, Jen Miklos, and Jess Miller, JAM Art and Supplies

The Helpline Center congratulates Jen Miklos on being named the January 2018 Volunteer of the Month, an area-wide award program sponsored by the Helpline Center and MetaBank.

Jen has been a dependable volunteer for JAM Art and Supplies for over a year and half. Jen lives so close to JAM that in a pinch she is able to run down and help volunteers in need. Many times she has unlocked the store and also is there to help new volunteers answer questions. Many times Jen will work beyond her volunteer hours to just help out around the store.

Jen puts many hours towards our nonprofit and NAMI. Jen understands the importance of our store for people with mental health disabilities and spreads the word about our mission.

The Helpline Center and MetaBank are pleased to present Jen with a framed certificate, a gift from MetaBank and a letter of appreciation. We will honor Jen again at the Spirit of Volunteerism Awards banquet on May 10, 2018.

For information on volunteer opportunities please call the Helpline Center at 211 or visit volunteer.helplinecenter.org.
