Volunteers of the Year
Emilie Siarkiewicz has been an active member of SBCO since 1998. She has worked on numerous programs, especially in fundraising, through the aluminum can recycling program, the Jim Click car raffles, and the Walkathon. She established the website in 2000 and updated it regularly. She has led the Labels for Education and Box Top Collection programs which provide funds for the schools to get needed equipment and books. She has served on the Board of Directors and is a Unit Captain for the annual food drive and Source Book delivery programs. This year she has donated over 150 pairs of handmade earrings to Kids’ Closet for graduation gifts.
Dennis Nemura has been a member of SBCO since 2011. He has worked in various areas associated with the Kids’ Closet. He is current the Kid’s Closet Receiving Manager and can be found many days of the week behind the curtain unpacking hundreds of boxes, counting the contents, labeling bins, and doing all that is needed to prepare the new clothing for transport to the Kids’ Closet. He has become very deft at removing the paper wadding from the toes of the sneakers that the kids so dearly treasure. It can be truly said that Dennis does a lot of the heavy lifting for Kids’ Closet.
