Paige sits with a client, going over insurance forms. It's not part of her job description as Manager of Providence Regina House in South Park, but she does it just the same. "I feel my job is to be the go to person for the community." Paige says as she smiles.
Paige Collins has become just that, the go to person. Each client that enters the food bank experiences her warmth, humor, and friendship. No one that is hungry is turned away. She helps clients maintain their dignity. There are special treats for the kids. She helps find other community programs to help her clients or South Park and supports community events.
If you visit Paige on any given day, you will see an array of people that stop by, for food or clothing, but to just say "hi" and let her know how they are doing.
For these reasons and so many others I nominate her for this award.
