Unsung Hero: Rita Tuck

(Mill Creek – WA) Rita Tuck of Mill Creek has been recognized as a SPIRIT 105.3 “Unsung Hero.”

To her friend Jeni, Rita is known as “a person that model’s God’s love and mercy for people… a tireless person who tries to fill the needs of others”. One of the ways that she demonstrates this character is by managing the Food Bank at Mill Creek Community Church. She provides groceries for the Food Bank and a monthly community lunch by gathering surplus food that is no longer eligible for sale from nearby grocery stores.

Her resources have allowed her to reach out to the community during holidays as well. During Halloween, Rita put on the event, “Treat Street” and she also participates in a turkey giveaway through the food bank. If that wasn’t enough, Rita established a local C.H.O.W program (Children Healthy On Weekends) with volunteers and church support to feed hungry children at Madison Elementary on weekends and school holidays.

In her spare time Rita gives platelets at the blood bank, collects and donates used clothing to various charities, and even started a Toys for Tots drive at the church. Rita is an inspiration to her church and surrounding community!

With a servant’s heart and a passion for others, Rita is a shining example of the “SPIRIT of Seattle.” It’s an honor and a privilege to recognize her as one of our “Unsung Heroes.”

SPIRIT 105.3’s “SPIRIT of Seattle – Unsung Hero” campaign is a program that recognizes individuals for their efforts to faithfully and selflessly serve others in our communities with joy and excellence each and every day.
