Mark Brown: Community Service Recognition
TEP proudly submits Mark Brown, for Community Service Recognition. He started as a Tucson Electric Power employee volunteer for the Community Food Bank, packing food bags in their warehouse. When the previous coordinator decided to take a step back, there was one clear choice for leadership. Mark stepped up and became the activity coordinator for the monthly event.
He continued to organize dozens of TEP volunteers and their families. His consistent and sustained support, scheduling up to 12 months out, got him noticed. It was his dedication to the challenging work of packing bags and scheduling teams that brought an invitation to serve on the Community Food Bank Advisory Board. He held that position for many years, and now serves on the Executive Board as Vice-Chair and other committees.
His leadership strengthened the CFB and TEP partnership by improving longstanding event engagement with the Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger, Holiday Harvest Food Drive, and Winterhaven Donation Collection Nights and by adding new event opportunities like the Hunger Walk and Canstruction. You might also find him recruiting volunteers for Tucson Meet Yourself, serving meals at the Primavera Men’s Shelter, frying up bacon or flipping pancakes for The Ronald McDonald House residents, or even as a ropes volunteer for the Girl Scouts Over the Edge. Thank you for all you do, Mark!
