Volunteer of the Week
Robert (Bo) Glenn
Urban Ministries of Durham
 

 
In the words of UMD staff member Elizabeth Newman, without Bo Glenn, “Urban Ministries would not be the same place.”  Bo is the rare volunteer who works both at the ground level, doing daily service work, and at the administrative level, developing programming and advocating for policies to help the poor and homeless.  Bo helps with UMD’s Food Pantry, Clothing Closet, and Community Café; welcomes and assists clients; and coordinates activities between the UMD and the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. 

He recently helped to secure a grant for Project LIFT (Lifelong Investment in Future Talent), a collaborative effort that will help clients who are moving into permanent housing. Bo’s legal expertise, his active involvement in county advisory committees, his recently acquired Spanish language skills, and his genuine compassion have made him a volunteer who truly makes a difference. Thank you, Bo, for your enthusiasm, energy and leadership!
