“Devote yourself to your community around you and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” – Mitch Albom

David has a gift and passion for music. For the past three years, he has graciously shared this gift with others in order to make things better for his community.

Not only is his passion and enthusiasm to help contagious, but it has become a way in which he actively participates in and belongs to his community. David has found purpose through his gifts, giving his time to encourage others to give. In this way, he makes his community better. Every year, the Salvation Army hosts a volunteer appreciation dinner, which David and his proud family members attend.

Congratulations David!
