Michael J Riley – Volunteer of the Month

Michael J. Riley, Personnel Manager for Walmart, went above and beyond last month to help Youth Connections’ Violence Prevention Work Group. In February, the VPWG was expecting to hear from our local Walmart store whether we would receive a grant. Instead, we received an automated response from the Walmart Corporate Office telling us we had not made the cut, but the reasoning did not add up. Representatives from the VPWG contacted the Helena Walmart, and it was there that our relationship with Michael began. He personally resubmitted our proposal even working early mornings and later in the evenings to get this done. He also helped to make the proposal a bit better. We nominated Michael for his willingness to work outside of office hours to help one of our youth programs. Thanks so much, Michael, for your good work!
