Posted 26 Jul 2010
Krutz has volunteered for AETN for more than 40 years; has been awarded the Community Service Governors Award for Volunteerism; and has been named PBSs Number One Volunteer of the Nation. Most Arkansans would recognize Krutz as the face or voice of AETN from her numerous appearances during the networks membership drives.
All proceeds will benefit the AETN Foundations Jane Krutz Volunteer Program Endowment Fund, which was created in 2007 and exists to sustain the Foundations active volunteer and internship programs. Gifts to the fund are combined and invested, and the interest generated from the investments will support volunteer program statewide trainings, communications, activity committees, and recognition, as well as the Foundations efforts to continually expand its volunteer base and show its appreciation. The AETN Foundation relies on nearly 10,000 volunteer hours annually.
