MINNEHAHA — Walk and Knock, the nation’s largest local one-day food drive, has presented longtime volunteer Bill Lundin with its third annual Bud Pasmore Volunteer Achievement Award.
The honor, named for Walk and Knock founder and first president Bud Pasmore, is presented annually to a Walk and Knock volunteer who has given of their time, energy and heart to the annual Clark County food drive.
“Bill has been a rock for Walk and Knock,” said President Tom Knappenberger. “Not only does he arrange for the semi-trucks to collect our thousands of pounds of donations, he’s always quietly there, from daybreak on drive day until the last truck has been unloaded.”
Knappenberger said that without Bill, there would be no Walk and Knock food drive. Bill has participated in 26 Walk and Knock drives going back to 1996.
In addition, Bill has been a longtime member of the Hazel Dell Lions since 1997. He is a past-president, and serves on committees and foundations throughout the Pacific Northwest, helping those less fortunate.
“Bill is one of those great community members who quietly get things done. You can always count on him,” Knappenberger said. “I wish we could clone him.”
