RED APRON HERO | JOHN PICKENS
John Pickens is one of the hardest working and most dedicated people we know. John oversees the two warehouses at Bluffton Self Help; he works hard to keep the shelves organized and to make sure that our workspace is tidy and safe. He is also one of the friendly faces who welcomes donors dropping off items at Bluffton Self Help. He is so dedicated to the mission of Bluffton Self Help that he schedules families vacations around his volunteer shifts at Bluffton Self Help! We could not serve our neighbors as efficiently as we do without John's help each week. We are grateful for his service and this community is better because of him!
