While most people dip their toes into volunteering in their community, Valerie jumped in with both feet. First, winning an award from Anne Arundel County Schools for having donated 500 hours of her time to her daughter’s school. She then turned to the needs of her community. Her ideas for making her home a better place to live, led to community members recruiting her to be President of her community association, where she instituted several policies to clean up her home and worked with governmental agencies to enforce regulations and codes, all of which worked for the betterment of her neighbors. Valerie was not done, as a daycare provider, she recognized the struggles of young mothers in obtaining the necessary items for their babies. The Green Haven Baby Pantry was born. So popular was this program, it spread to the entirety of Pasadena, then the state, as she helped baby pantries across Maryland. Valerie has a wonderful ability to make connections between organizations and to convey needs that inspire others to help.
