Kay Robers was awarded the WUL Hometown Hero Award on Wednesday, May 6, “For her motivating and caring leadership at The Community Space, and for facilitating donations and inspiring many volunteers so that community members can gather food, clothing and household items in a warm, caring environment.”
Kay said, “None of it would be possible if it wasn’t for the volunteers, donors and clients that keep us going. It takes a village, and we have the most awesome village that ever existed.”
Kay has been involved in The Community Space and what was previously called The Clothes Closet for more than 20 years.
WUL (Whitewater Unites Lives) is a locally-focused civil and human rights group that works to connect the people in our community and to create opportunities for all people to learn and support each other in our common humanity.
