Mimi Greenlee believes that the key to successful volunteer projects is collaboration. She was nominated by the Westport Library, where she has been a volunteer for over 17 years and we are thrilled to honor Mimi as our August Volunteer of the Month.
A Westport resident since 1971, Mimi is a former teacher and current math and reading tutor at Kumon with a long history of volunteering. Mimi credits her husband for giving her the gift of being able to focus her work in the community while raising her children. 17 years ago she started her volunteer career with the Westport Library, as the President of the Friends of the Library. After two years on that committee, she took over the annual book sale for the library and has been coordinating the sale ever since. Last year's book sale was the same day as her 50th wedding anniversary. Being the dedicated volunteer she is, she went to the sale in the morning, popped out in the afternoon to attend a wedding and came back to finish out the day. She said she's lucky to have a great guy who agreed to celebrate on another day!
