APS-FH shares some kind words about their vol­un­teer of the month.

The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Society—Friday Har­bor is pleased to announce Lin­da Pol­lard as its vol­un­teer of the month for May.

Lin­da came to vol­un­teer at the APS-FH Trea­sure Hounds store in Novem­ber 2021, soon after relo­cat­ing to Fri­day Har­bor. Trea­sure Hounds is APS-FH’s upscale-resale home decor and fur­ni­ture store. All items for sale in the store are donat­ed and the store is staffed by vol­un­teers. Trea­sure Hounds is sig­nif­i­cant to APS-FH as 100 per­cent of its sales sup­port near­ly 20 per­cent of the over­all oper­at­ing expens­es of APS-FH.

Lin­da learned about Trea­sure Hounds from her uncle, a long-time res­i­dent of San Juan Island and friend to APS-FH. After fur­nish­ing her new home in Fri­day Har­bor with many items from the store, Lin­da decid­ed to join the Trea­sure Hounds team of vol­un­teers, work­ing at the store each Fri­day as a cashier and pro­vid­ing cus­tomer service.

Quick­ly rec­og­niz­ing an oppor­tu­ni­ty to add more val­ue, Lin­da offered to take on the role of Trea­sure Hounds’ vol­un­teer coor­di­na­tor, pro­vid­ing vol­un­teer ori­en­ta­tion and train­ing and coor­di­nat­ing the vol­un­teer sched­ule. Lin­da offers encour­age­ment and sup­port to vol­un­teers, mak­ing sure their expe­ri­ence is a pos­i­tive one. Since tak­ing on this role, Lin­da has helped to recruit and train five new vol­un­teers for the store. We thank Lin­da for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence for APS-FH, the ani­mals, and the vol­un­teer team at Trea­sure Hounds. We are so for­tu­nate to have her involvement.
