Maytag Salutes: Bruce Garrison
12 May, 2016
Name: Bruce Garrison
Hometown: Oakland Park, FL
Why we are saluting Bruce:
As the single father of two grown children, you’d think Bruce would use his spare time to relax, but that’s not the case at all. Instead, he’s spent much of the past 18 years working as a volunteer for numerous nonprofit organizations and management.
He is currently the Volunteer Program Manager for the City of Oakland Park. In that role, he is able to encourage volunteer involvement through the development and implementation of programs that include home “makeovers” for the elderly, veterans and handicapped, youth reading initiatives to increase child literacy, graffiti patrols, park and waterway cleanup opportunities, and much more.
It may not be as relaxing as catching up on sleep, but Bruce knows the betterment of his community is much more rewarding.
