Ramsey County volunteer Ruby Parker receives 2016 Be the Change award

Ramsey County volunteer Ruby Parker

Congratulations to volunteer Ruby Parker, who was honored with a 2016 Be the Change award February 27 during the annual HandsOn Twin Cities Volunteer Expo.

Ruby has volunteered with Ramsey County Community Human Services as an Information Desk Attendant for more than two years and has provided 1,957 hours of service to date. As explained in Ruby’s nomination, “A visit to Human Services is often stressful… The volunteer at the information desk often sees people at their lowest and sometimes bears the brunt of their frustrations. It takes a special person with compassion, patience and a thick skin to handle the demands of hundreds of visitors and staff each day: Ruby is that person.”

Ruby is also a member of the Ramsey County Citizens Advisory Council’s Low Income Committee and serves as an usher and kitchen ministry member at her church.

Thank you, Ruby, for the tremendous service you provide Ramsey County residents.
