Meet Phillip. He grew up in Erie, PA, moved to Texas and spent much of his adult life in Kentucky. Phillip is a dad and grandfather. He loves kids and animals. He was a coast to coast truck driver for 18 years, thirteen of which he was a driver trainer. He has always been the type of person who has given to others. He was employed at two separate companies providing services to mentally challenged children and adults. For 7 years he provided respite care for 2 mentally challenged adults in adult foster care in addition to many others. Volunteering has deep roots in Phillip’s past. He volunteered for a local soup kitchen and a food bank. Phillip came to Beaufort to be near his daughter and her family and to help out with the grandchildren as a “Manny” several years ago. It was here that he met the love of his life Carolyn and got introduced to The Lending Room. Since then, Phillip has been active in every aspect of The Lending Room. He has volunteered shifts, helped to pick up and deliver equipment, helped transport excess medical equipment to our missions’ partner, helps with maintenance and repairing the storage space/equipment, and anything that needs to be done. He is an amazing blessing to The Lending Room and a terrific volunteer.
