Lake Worth, Greenacres AT&T workers honored for volunteer work


In case you didn’t know, it’s National Volunteer Month.

AT&T is celebrating 55 South Florida employees who were honored with the President’s Volunteer Service Award, which recognizes individuals who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism.

Two of those 55 employees are from areas we know very well — Lake Worth and Greenacres.

Ava Greaves of Lake Worth, a senior tax accountant with AT&T and Paul Freeman of Greenacres, a technical sales consultant, were honored.

“Children and sewing are my passion,” said Greaves, 54. “So teaching teens at the Children’s Home Society how to sew is a perfect fit. It allows me to share a craft that’s rarely taught anywhere.”

Freeman 45, said there’s no greater feeling than giving back to the community and volunteering for the Boy Scouts and his church.

“Helping boys learn new skills and develop their leadership is incredibly rewarding,” Freeman said. “I donate to my church to help people build a closer relationship with God. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than that.”
