Terri O’Neal came to Life Remodeled in August as our Community Engagement Coordinator through AmeriCorps VISTA. Since joining the team, Terri has accomplished a number of things, and we wanted to share an update on what she’s been up to!
Since joining the Life Remodeled team, Terri says she has enjoyed getting to know and working with community members. She organized the LRCAC Memorial Service, honoring community residents who have lost their lives to COVID-19, coordinated five on-site recruitment stations, attended numerous district/block club/community collaborative meetings, and engaged community members and volunteers during the annual Six-Day Project.
“I am proud to be helping so many people get the resources they need, especially during such a difficult time.” Said Terri. “I love meeting and collaborating with different people. I love learning from people with such interesting life stories. And I love empowering the people in my hometown with quality resources, transformative opportunities, and impactful solutions.”
In the coming weeks, Terri will continue engaging community members in safe and socially distanced community events, including a trick-or-treating at the Durfee Innovation Society on Halloween, and Gleaners food giveaways every other Tuesday from 2-4pm. See the flyer below for more details.
