Volunteer Spotlight: Adam Yelton

Our Volunteer Spotlight is one of our 2017 Both Hands Project Managers, Adam Yelton. In this role, Adam will be in charge of one of our work sites where Both Hands Volunteers will spend the day serving a widow as they work on various projects around and in her home. 

Brian King, CFLM's Director of Development, had only kind words when asked about Adam's role in supporting CFLM. He said,

"I have never seen Adam Yelton when he did not have a smile on his face. He has worked with us for the last several years on the Both Hands project and he has been asked to do some pretty tough jobs. But he has always jumped in willingly, and with a smile. It has been my pleasure to serve with him. The jobs are not always easy, but if Adam is around, they are always fun. (He also makes some of the best pulled pork I've ever had the pleasure to eat.)"
