On Friday, October 5th, ARCS staff threw a potluck luncheon in our Newburgh office to honor Charlene “Roxie” Herring for her twenty years of volunteer work. Roxie, as she’s affectionately known, began volunteering for ARCS in 1992 when she heard about the high death rates among people with AIDS at that time. Since then she has become a welcome fixture of our Newburgh office. Staff presented Roxie with a special certificate and a bouquet of flowers to mark this milestone occasion.

“She is always ready to help wherever needed and is someone our clients feel comfortable speaking with while waiting for services in the reception area,” said Saqib Altaf, Assistant Director of Client Services. “Roxie is very proud of the work she does for ARCS, not only by volunteering her time, but on many occasions she brings in items for the ARCS pantry to be given out to clients. I have never seen her upset or in a bad mood. She is always pleasant, will greet you with a smile, and ‘what can I do for you today!’”
