How she helps: For over 10 years, Sally has served as the volunteer shopper for AWARE. Each week she reviews the shopping list for the shelter and travels to several stores to buy the necessary groceries and household items for the shelter residents.

AWARE Volunteer Coordinator Ati Nasiah says: "Sally is an intelligent, focused and loving woman. Her gift of groceries is immensely helpful. Her presence, however, is the greater gift. In a simple and down to earth way Sally has made Juneau and AWARE a better and brighter place to be. She seems to change the world step by step."
