RiverWorks has hired JoAnn Huebsch for a newly created position as Volunteer Coordinator. 

Her focus will be recruiting  volunteers for the thrift store. For information on volunteering you can email volunteer@riverworksonline.org
 
JoAnn was previously a Volunteer Coordinator for a large non-profit in St. Cloud.  " I am excited to join the staff at RiverWorks and apply that experience to their mission of aligning and mobilizing community resources to deliver powerful solutions which meet the emotional, physical, relational and spiritual needs of people connected to the Rockford/Greenfield area."
 
JoAnn lives in Delano with Husband Jeremy, and three girls Marin, Autumn, and Chloe.  She
 serves in Youth Ministry at Riverwood, and that is what began to connect her heart with the Rockford Community.  When she's not at work she is chasing her children from the hockey rink to a swim m eet, or running with Team World Vision down a wooded trail.
