Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union is proud to award a $1,000 SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award to Joyce Lissimore!

For the last 16 years Joyce has provided enthusiastic and respectful leadership to the team of volunteers with SHARE Family & Community Services satellite food bank distribution site at Trinity United Church in Port Coquitlam. Joyce’s contributions go far beyond the food bank distribution leadership as throughout the years she has helped food bank users:

• get their taxes done – which has meant they could access government refunds
• replace lost or stolen identification – which has allowed them to access services
• get glasses - so they could read and see
• access work clothing and steel toed boots - so they could work

Many different people come to use this service and there are many different volunteers. Joyce has consistently brought a fair and open approach to her leadership, seeing the possibility in people. She has provided over 4,400 volunteer hours in this role and provided a predictability and stability that is greatly valued. Joyce helps people get back on their feet and improve their circumstances. She sees the whole person and helps in endless individual ways. Many people are in better situations and making better lives for themselves and their families due to her kindness, respect and assistance.

Thank you Joyce for inspiring us!
