Tifton woman honored for her service

July 6, 2007

Valdosta - A South Georgia woman is being nationally recognized for her work with charity.

Donna Tillman is a UPS employee in Tifton. In her spare time, she's also a volunteer firefighter, a friend of Reed Bingham State Park, sponsors a charity organization, and volunteers her time towards other charities.

Friday, she was honored by her company and given the James E. Casey Community Service award.

She was chosen to receive the award out of 400,000 employees worldwide.  "I tell people UPS pays the bills and volunteering pays the soul.  I feel very blessed that God gives me the strength to work a job like that and take on as much volunteer work as I do," Tillman says.

She also won a trip to Seattle where she's planning to do some more charity work on behalf of the company.
