October Volunteer of the Month
Petty Officer Second Class Reginald “Reggie” Phillips has been serving in the United States Navy for over 6 years and is currently attached to the Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic in Washington, D.C. A sports and fitness enthusiast, Reggie joined our organization as a volunteer at the 2016 Marine Corps Marathon and has always been a reliable volunteer at our events in the D.C. area ever since. As we gear up for the 2017 Marine Corps Marathon, Reggie will be the HOPE Volunteer Coordinator at the event and has assisted in the recruitment of 70 volunteers for race day! In addition to volunteering with our organization, he is the Assistant Command Volunteer Coordinator for his unit.
Prior to joining the United States Navy, Reggie, a Dallas, TX native, graduated from Southwestern Christian College and was a student-athlete participating in football, basketball, cross-country, track, and tennis. His work ethic and passion for volunteerism and service to community and country was something that was instilled in him by his parents. His father is retired from the United States Air Force and continued his service with the Texas Highway Patrol and his mother devoted most of her professional career to being an educator. She now currently runs an outreach program for the community.
We would like to thank Reggie for his support and devotion to Hope For The Warriors! We are blessed to have him as a part of our HOPE family. We know no matter what we need his assistance with, he will go above and beyond to get the job done with a positive attitude that is contagious and inspiring to others. Thank you, Reggie, for all that you do for HOPE and for our nation, and congratulations on being nominated as our October Volunteer of the Month!
