Barbara Heim is MAC Volunteer of the Month for April

Barbara Heim of North Cape May, N.J. is the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) Volunteer of the Month for April 2012. MAC’s Chief Outreach Officer Mary Stewart nominated Heim for her many years of volunteer work and leadership in MAC’s volunteer program, and for helping spearhead one of MAC’s most successful initiatives – the Volunteer of the Month award. “She has volunteered for every Designer Show House and Christmas Candlelight Tour – just about every time we need her,” said Stewart. “She never says ‘no.'” Heim recently retired from the MAC board after nine years of outstanding service, for which she received the 2011 MAC Honor Award. Heim said she joined MAC as a way of getting involved in the Cape May community, and found a community of friends in the process. She recommends volunteering to anyone who is interested in making friends, learning about Cape May, or utilizing their talents. MAC has come to mean a great deal to her, she said. The Volunteer of the Month award is given to a person who demonstrates a high degree of dedication, commitment and constancy to MAC’s volunteer program.
