Employee Anniversary: Allen Bloodworth (2008)

Allen has been with the Iron County Care and Share since May 29, 2008. As the Shelter Coordinator, he oversees the shelter monitors, the shelter kitchen and pantry and coordinates all the meals in shelter. He has a multitude of skills and can fix and/or install nearly anything that breaks. In addition to his wit, Allen has an incredible heart and willingness to assist wherever needed. He has a true passion and dedication for serving our clients and goes above and beyond on a daily basis.

Happy Anniversary Allen. Thank you for being an important part of our team.

P.S. We know this is not your style, but we couldn’t let the special day pass.
