Gay Alliance Volunteers-of-the-Month
David and Jill Frier
Congratulations to David and Jill Frier for being chosen as the Gay Alliance Volunteers-of-the-Month!
The Dec/Jan edition of the Empty Closet is a combined issue, so we thought we would combine our Volunteer-of-the-Month award and honor an amazing couple!!! Congratulations to Jill and David Frier for being chosen as the Gay Alliance Volunteers-of-the-Month for January and February!
Since 2011, Jill has been sharing her beautiful photos with us as a volunteer Empty Closet photographer and David has been providing tech and information security support.
Both Jill and David were active Roc Pride volunteers in 2011 and 2013. This past Pride, David and Jill opened up their home to all of the parade volunteers to get out of the hot sun, use the facilities and get a cool drink. They have actively participated as volunteers at the Red Ball for the past two years. Both Jill and David completed the Gay Alliance SpeakOUT Training and have trained to become Gay Alliance Speakers Bureau members. They often offer to jump in as need to help out with other events, like the Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals Exhibit at the JCC. Most recently, David and Jill donated some well-needed file server equipment to our office.
We are so grateful to have Jill and David Frier as a part of our volunteer team. On behalf of the Gay Alliance staff and board, we thank you for all of your hours, your commitment, your donations and your support.
