Congratulations to 2012 Eco-Hero Gabrielle Posard, whose organization Donate Don’t Dump has teamed with the White House to become a Certifying Organization for the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD, a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service.

Gabrielle writes, “We are now rescuing 20,000 pounds of donated food every month from grocery stores and food companies and distributing to struggling families every week. We just got recognized by the White House! Since we started, the Food bank has seen a marked increase in rescued food donations from grocers etc. They credit us with getting 800,000 pounds of food diverted from becoming landfill waste and instead to struggling families.”

Keep up your inspiring work Gabrielle; we are very proud of you!
