Extraordinary Gaithersburg: Linda Hanson
Gaithersburg HELP Executive Director Linda Hanson was nominated for a Person of Character award by those who have witnessed her long tradition of selflessness. For this all-volunteer organization, she provides collaborative, inclusive leadership that makes emergency food, transportation and prescription assistance available to our community's most vulnerable. She will become President of the Gaithersburg Rotary Club in July, she is involved with PTA and Interact Clubs, and has served in advisory capacities on several City committees.
The award was presented by the Mayor and City Council on January 20. We know there are many people doing extraordinary things in our community each and every day. Let us know about them by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Use "Extraordinary Gaithersburg" in the subject line.
