Amy Rogers of Port St. Joe was selected last week as the Volunteer of the Month of October by Second Harvest of the Big Bend.

Rogers assisted Second Harvest in planning four direct food distributions since May.

She helped lead a team of 20 or more volunteers in organizing direct food distributions, providing food to over 1,000 families, at Zion Fair Missionary Baptist Church in May; at Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School in July and August; and at Oak Grove Assembly of God Church last month.

“I am passionate about serving the underprivileged, financially disadvantaged and socially deprived poor people,” Rogers said.

Rogers also volunteers with Gulf County Democrats, Gulf County United Community Development Center, the Gulf County Juvenile Justice Council and is also Deaconess at Zion Fair Missionary Baptist Church.
