Cranbury, NJ — April 20, 2020 — During the month of April, AmeriHealth New Jersey celebrates the spirit of volunteerism and the commitment its associates have made to local New Jersey communities for more than 25 years. Today, we are honoring one associate for her commitment to service with the inaugural Impact Awards.
Mary McLean-Yabor, Senior Proposal Specialist, is recognized for her exceptional commitment to volunteerism in 2020. Mary co-leads the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey food delivery service and participates in Students Run Philly Style as a Running Leader outside of her volunteer work.
Mary says she volunteers for selfish reasons. Whether it‘s preparing dinner and visiting with families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey, mentoring students with Student’s Run Philly Style, or painting a rec center for a Day of Service, she gets way more from volunteering than she gives, she insists.
She is particularly proud of her leadership work with Student’s Run Philly Style, where she is a running leader and mentor for middle and high school students. She says that running helps kids develop a sense of accomplishment and meaningful problem-solving skills.
She feels privileged to work with these youngsters, getting to know them, and even bridging a “generation gap.” She’s learned volunteering can make a difference in many ways: from helping someone improve their mental and physical strength, to putting together a hot meal for a needy family.
Mary’s humble nature and willingness to help those in need make her an exemplary volunteer.
AmeriHealth New Jersey is also hosting Community Impact Days this week, which provides associates numerous virtual volunteer opportunities. Associates will volunteer virtually across a diverse group of community organizations dedicated to helping children, seniors and individuals impacted by homelessness.
