The holiday season often brings out the best in people, yet there are some who make community service a way of life and inspire us all to be better. Assistant Professor of Human Services Anthony “Tony” Yeulenski is one such person. Mr Yeulenski has quietly been helping the Webster-Dudley community as Unit Coordinator for the Webster-Dudley branch of the Salvation Army.

Most everyone is familiar with the Salvation Army bell ringers, who come out each year during the holiday to raise money for those in need. However, this year has been particularly challenging for the non-profit organization due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as the need is greater and there are less volunteers. Yet there are people like Mr. Yeulenski who continue the fundraising efforts despite the challenges.

According to Professor of Human Resources Brenda Safford, his fundraising efforts have helped many including some recipients who were QCC students.

“This is Tony’s first year at QCC and he is truly an asset to our college and community. He is very humble about his work and community service. He is a great role model for our students in the Human Services Program, by teaching and showing them how to have compassion inside and outside of the classroom,” she said, adding, “Thank you, Tony for caring and sharing your compassion in the true spirit of giving.”
