Volunteer of the Month: John McDowell

WOW! John spends summer volunteering with Hinton, devoting around 40 hours a WEEK to the mission outreach program. John leads teams, connects with groups, trains summer staff, and does so with a huge smile on his face (don't let the photo fool you, we had to tell him not to smile!).

Thanks, John!
