Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE - By Melissa Prins

Lo­cal res­i­dent Ja­nis Neilsen was hon­ored on Dec. 16 for com­plet­ing more than 200 hours of vol­un­teer ser­vice at Tabitha’s Way in Span­ish Fork. Neilsen was pre­sented with a plaque and a bou­quet of a dozen roses. She has been serv­ing in the lo­cal food pantry help­ing to dis­trib­ute food and sup­plies to fam­i­lies in need.

“Ja­nis ex­em­pli­fies what it means to love thy neigh­bor. She comes ev­ery week for sev­eral hours on our busiest day, help­ing to check and stock food and then serve the food to fam­i­lies. It’s hard work at times, but Ja­nis al­ways serves with a big heart and smil­ing face,” said Wendy Os­borne, di­rec­tor of Tabitha’s Way. “We are blessed to have her as a part of our food pantry.”

Lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions such as Tabitha’s Way rely on the help of vol­un­teers to feed the thou­sands of in­di­vid­u­als served monthly. Along with food, the or­ga­ni­za­tion also pro­vides sup­plies for in­fants and se­niors such as di­a­pers and hy­giene kits. Per­sons in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing can sign up at www.tabithasway.org and click on “Vol­un­teer­ing.”
