The inaugural Hotline Volunteer of the Month for September 2021 is Sally Meager of the Hotline Too thrift shop in Nags Head.
Meager was nominated by her manager, who stated: “Sally became a volunteer with Hotline just by walking into Hotline Too one day looking for something to do to keep her busy. Her wish is our command! Sally runs the register one a day a week and processes donations, prices and puts out our linens daily. Sometimes there are so many linens in her room we can’t see her. Sally loves to play bridge weekly and she is also the lead of a quilting group called the Blanketeers. The Blanketeers is comprised of 60 people who make 400 quilts a year for children and adults who are ill or have suffered a tragedy.”
It was noted that Meager personifies the kindness and generosity of the volunteer spirit.
“Outer Banks Hotline‘s mission is to promote a safe and compassionate community,” stated the press release from Outer Banks Hotline. “We are a private, non-profit human services organization that provides crisis intervention, safe house, information and referrals, advocacy, and prevention education services to residents of and visitors to the Outer Banks.
