Since 1985, Jim Brown has been working with Volunteers of America in Everett. In 1995 he began the VOA Vehicle Donation Program that he says, “Turns your car into food and shelter”. In addition to working with VOA, Jim is an ordained minister and holds a protestant service at Washington Oakes every Sunday afternoon. He’s also a cabinet-maker.
