Volunteer Spotlight: Brenda Osborne

Brenda Osborne has been a soldier and volunteering with The Salvation Army for more than 30 years. She began volunteering in the Thrift Store in the early 80’s and became a soldier shortly after. However, the Corps closed and she moved on to other things. Much to her delight, her daughter invited her to a service at the newly opened Salvation Army in 2011 and she hasn’t looked back! She attends services weekly, is involved in the leadership council and active in Women’s Ministries. Brenda OsborneMore than that, she volunteers more than 40 hours a week as the receptionist for our administrative offices. She assist our homeless friends and neighbors by monitoring their access to showers and laundry services. She eagerly helps the staff by helping make copies for upcoming groups or events, is very crafty and often can create accessories for upcoming events adding just the right touch. An incredible baker, she often makes cupcakes or cakes for upcoming special occasions…with homemade icing of course. “As a retired person, Volunteering gives me purpose and I really enjoy helping other people.” The Salvation Army Cleveland are so blessed to have her and are very grateful for all she does!”
