“Make a Difference … Volunteer!” So exhorts the home page for the President’s Volunteer Service Award program. Someone who did – Reis Pearson (photo left) from the Rotary Club of West Seattle – has been honored with the award, according to an announcement from ShelterBox USA. Pearson is one of three WS Rotarians who work with ShelterBox, which we’ve featured here before – as described in the announcement, “an international disaster-relief organization that delivers emergency tented shelter and other lifesaving supplies to survivors of disasters and other humanitarian crises.” Last year alone, Pearson’s fund- and awareness-raising work for ShelterBox helped it “respond to more than 25 disasters in 19 countries last year, providing families with disaster relief tents, cook stoves, water filters, blankets, mosquito nets, children’s packs and other essential equipment.” Pearson is a local entrepreneur as well, proprietor of Inside Out Building Inspection.

  3. What great news. I actually had her do two home inspections a few years back and she was fantastic. Glad to know her great spirit is being rewarded.

  5. Aside from a great inspector and a really nice person, she embodies the spirit of what it (really) means to pay it forward. Well deserved.

  6. Way to go Reis! Love looking at the blog from way down South in the ATL and seeing my fellow WS friends and neighbors doing GOOD things back at home. Proud of you girl, and Willis would’ve been too. :)
