Family Volunteer of the Year

Since 2003, soldiers Roberto and Lourdes Trejo have given countless hours of year-round service at the Olathe, Kan., Corps. Lourdes handles Christmas assistance applications and the toy distribution while providing vital Spanish-translation services. Every night she counts kettles with Roberto, who drives kettles and bellringers back and forth each day after work, then drives all day on his days off and during the two weeks of vacation he always takes before Christmas!

The Trejos prepare meals for corps events, assist with youth ministries and devote themselves to community outreach. Lourdes also works with back-to-school assistance.

“Serving makes me happy because I serve Jesus,” Lourdes said. “I cook for Jesus, and Roberto drives for Jesus. It’s all for Jesus!”

Olathe Corps Officer Lt. Heidi Strand said, “They allow us to accomplish great things…[and are] perfect examples of what servants of Christ look like.”
