Carolyn Perry of Glen Burnie

Volunteer Work: Ms. Perry has been a volunteer with the Salvation Army for two years, performing an assortment of tasks, including helping the Monday night youth group that meets at the Glen Burnie office and most recently staffing the donation kettle at Harundale Mall.

Volunteer's comment: "I've always done volunteer work, even when I was a child. I've done volunteer work for other places like the Marley Glen School, but the most reward has come from doing work for the Salvation Army. I can see here that the money is going to good use. The money from the kettles goes directly to helping the community.

"Sometimes I bring some of my children here to help out. I think it's good that they learn early in life about helping others.

"I believe the more you give, the more you receive and you always receive the reward of knowing you've done something to help others."

About the volunteer: Ms. Perry, a Baltimore native, has been a Glen Burnie resident for 20 years.

In addition to her volunteer work she has been a foster parent, and has adopted four children, three of whom have special needs.
