April is Volunteer Appreciation Month, and recently Shirley Nack, one of our outstanding volunteers in Savannah, was honored by United Way of the Coastal Empire HandsOn Savannah for her commitment to Lutheran Services of Georgia. Shirley was nominated for a Volunteer Recognition Award in the Health and Human Services category, along with 33 other volunteers at nonprofits across the Savannah area. Along with Linda Larson of Lutheran Services of Georgia, who nominated Shirley for the award, Deidre Harrison of LSG and husband Phil Nack joined Shirley at the Volunteer Recognition Luncheon earlier this week.
Even though Shirley did not win the award from the United Way, we would like to recognize her invaluable contributions to LSG and to the Savannah Golf Classic in particular. For each of the nine years the event has been held, Shirley has single-handedly gathered as many as 30 gifts for door prizes and the silent auction. These gifts help LSG to raise funds for the life-changing programs offered in the greater Savannah area. For these reasons and many others, LSG thanks Shirley Nack for her excellent work!
