Volunteer Spotlight of the Month: Mike Kothbauer

January 24, 2013 By: Kaia Arthur, Volunteer Coordinator Category: WordPress Import

Mike Kothbauer, a longtime volunteer and supporter of Second Harvest Heartland, has volunteered in just about as many ways one could ever envision: He’s worked the phones at the Let’s Kick Hunger Day Radiothon; sorted, packed and labeled food; worked the assembly line; and now makes calls to seniors and others eligible for federal food assistance programs to remind them that their monthly box of food is ready for pick up.

Like many of our volunteers, Mike started volunteering at Second Harvest Heartland through his employer, Land O’Lakes. And now that he is retired, he still participates in community service through Land O’Lakes’ retiree volunteer program, a service-focused program for retirees to stay active and involved in their community.

And stay active Mike does—for the last two years, Mike has donated over 100 hours of volunteer service to Second Harvest Heartland each year. To recognize him for his superior community service, the Land O’Lakes Foundation has donated $500 to Second Harvest Heartland each year as part of their Dollars for Doers program.

We enjoy seeing Mike around the office every week, and appreciate all the time he’s donated to us over the years. Thank you Mike for all you do!
