Giving Back in Honor of Our Volunteers

Chances are, if you have called MSC, you have spoken to Julie Marshall or “Juuulie” as she is affectionally referred to within the office walls.  Julie joined MSC in 2017 as an Inside Sales and Customer Service Rep and has not looked back.  As a Mother of 2, Julie is busy at work and at home but still has time to give back to our local Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter.

At MSC, Julie provides our customers with new product ideas, re-orders and information on their account.  In her FREE TIME, Julie schedules the rides to and from our local VA hospital in Durham, NC.  She confirms appointments and drivers for those in our area that can not make the 100 mile trip on their own.

Volunteering for this organization was something near and dear to Julie and her family. Her husband, Ezra, is a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom where he served overseas and suffered 40% hearing loss. Veterans’ organizations, such as the DAV are so helpful and pivotal in recovery and resources for veterans like Ezra that she needed to give back somehow. After seeing a sign to volunteer when accompanying him to an appointment at the VA-she went straight to the volunteer office and signed up!

In recognition of Julie’s efforts with the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of  DAV  and the care that DAV provides for Veterans in our community, MSC has donated $1000 to the DAV – Chapter 37 for repairs and maintenance for their vehicles.  It is our privilege to support our colleagues in the non – profit organizations that are near to their hearts.

Additional organizations to receive contributes from our recent Spring Warehouse Sale are First United Methodist Church of Washington in memory of Frank Deaner (husband of a longtime employee, Missy Deaner), and Shelter of Love, a children’s orphanage in Cambodia with ties to our hometown, Washington, NC.

Our next Warehouse Sale is on SATURDAY, APRIL 6th at 1201 W. 4th Street. Washington, NC from 9am to 1pm.  For more information, visit our Tassels FB page.
