Volunteer Spotlight: Juli, Utah Program

Juli is both a Utah drop off location and a warehouse supervisor! She does it all! She has been with LHI Utah since about the beginning. Her warehouse shifts are usually large groups of volunteers that come in to help out. She does a wonderful job making sure that everyone has a great experience. We are so grateful for all of the many ways that she contributes to LHI here in Utah.
