Outstanding Volunteer Award Posthumously Presented to Judy White for Senior Angel Tree Project

WENTWORTH, NC (Nov. 21, 2018) - The Rockingham County Board of Commissioners awarded the "Outstanding Volunteer Award Posthumously" to Judy White for her tireless work with the Senior Angel Tree Project.  County Commissioner W. Keith Mabe made the presentation to Judy White's son, Wally, at the Nov. 19th meeting of the Rockingham Board of Commissioners in Wentworth.

The Outstanding Volunteer Nomination explained that Judy White created the Senior Angel Tree in 1998 in Rockingham County.  Per the nomination:  "Because her dry cleaners was already collecting coats for the Salvation Army, she asked the Salvation Army to partner with her on this program.  She hosted a tree in her business with angels to collect gifts for seniors who had no family, or wouldn't be expecting gifts, so that they could still enjoy Christmas.  Many years, she purchased for multiple angels to make sure everyone would receive a gift.  In 19 years, over 300 seniors have received Christmas gifts because of this program she created.  Judy White passed away in August 2017.  Her request was that people would donate to the Senior Angel Tree in lieu of flowers because she wanted the program to continue.  For the 20th Anniversary, her family has sought out a new second location so that the program will become countywide."  

Those interested in participating in the Senior Angel Tree Program, may stop by Zibbys Cleaners in Eden, LaBoutique in Reidsville, or the Rockingham County Salvation Army.
