Terri Roberts | United Way of Acadiana Volunteer

Terri is a consistent volunteer with United Way, beginning her service at the start of the pandemic. Her volunteerism includes serving at the 3 O’Clock Project distribution sites - where students receive breakfast and lunch for the week – packing and delivering food twice weekly to homebound residents, and working in the heat during the summer as mass food distributions where cars are given tens of thousands of pounds of food. Terri is an invaluable part of the organization’s COVID response efforts. While raising a family, being pregnant, and working full-time, Terri always finds time to help her community. “Terri is one of those people who makes a space better when she’s in it,” says United Way of Acadiana. Thank you, Terri, for your unwavering support!
