Pioneer Bank recently recognized Leigh Humble, who works in the bank’s Internal Auditing Department, as its 2019 Volunteer of the Year.

According to a press release from the bank, she increased “her volunteer efforts by over 100 hours in 2019.”

Most of those hours were spent crafting fleece blankets for patients at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital.

“In August 2019, while in Albuquerque for a dart tournament, I got to talking to an old friend of mine there named Chris Crum,” said Humble. “He told me about an ongoing project that he and his wife are involved in. Each year they make tie-together blankets for the kids who are patients at UNM Children’s Hospital.

“Their goal at that point was to get 180 blankets made. …” Humble said. “This is something I can do to help out.”
