Linda Barker, Citizens Bank Branch Manager, has shown steadfast committment to Lund’s mission over the past four years.  She frequently asks “what is the next thing you need?” and is eager to hit the ground running.  Lund relies on Linda for her determination and passion; she regularly goes above and beyond to help Lund achieve its mission to help children thrive.  Not only does Linda volunteer her own time and talents, but she also reaches out to her coworkers and friends, routinely delivering a team for events and special projects. She brings energy and enthusiasm to fundraising efforts, secures sponsorships, and plays a lead role in special event planning.

Thank you, Sara and Linda, for your generous contributions and committment to Lund!  Congratulations!
