ISN’s Stephanie Stoker has worked with the company for 10 years and reports that helping people achieve their goals is the most rewarding part of her job. Stephanie recently was honored with the Marilyn Williams Staff Excellence Award for her outstanding contributions to ISN. In addition to co-chairing our United Way Campaign, Stephanie is an active member of the World Beat Dragon Boat Club, and has even learned to till a dragon boat.
Stephanie is also passionate about volunteering for a local project formed in response to the increase in homelessness in the Salem area. Stephanie, project organizers Kathleen Thorpe and Annie Potter and other volunteers have been partnering with Northwest Human Services Homeless Outreach and Advocacy Program (HOAP) to serve people who are homeless and have trouble accessing food banks. HOAP distributes the packages and donations. The food they package is easy to eat, requires no cooking or refrigeration and is healthy food such as raisins, peanut butter, nuts and fruit cups.
