Volunteer Spotlight Featuring Barb Humer
November 2023 BUSEY'S VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Living the Busey promise in her community, Barb Humer, AVP – Administrative Assistant II, is being recognized as Busey’s Volunteer of the Month
Barb’s involvement as a volunteer with Feeding Our Kids shows her dedication to ensure nourishing food is provided to food-insecure students in Champaign County. Barb has continued to be a reliable volunteer with this organization as many students need and rely on this program to succeed. During her volunteer shifts, Barb spends her time unloading food trucks and filling hundreds of bags with nutritional food items for the youth. Without the help of volunteers like Barb, the impact Feeding Our Kids has in the Champaign County community would not be possible.
Maggie’s Rose for Cystic Fibrosis is also an organization that inspires Barb’s passions to make a difference. Barb’s granddaughter Maggie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 6 weeks old. Since her diagnosis, Barb’s daughter made the decision to research and start a charity to help raise awareness for an important cause. Maggie’s Rose for Cystic Fibrosis not only raises awareness, but also helps patients, their families, and the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at Carle by purchasing medical supplies and other daily needs for those in her community battling Cystic Fibrosis. “I am so thankful to Busey for allowing me time to be able to volunteer my time at some of my favorite organizations,” Barb mentions. Thank you, Barb, for being a positive influence in numerous ways throughout your community!
