Volunteer spotlight—Mary Fulton

Social Action Committee

Longtime TBE Social Action Committee member Mary Fulton recently received a United Way Community Volunteer Award for her work with Madison-area Urban Ministry (MUM). Mary has provided 4,000 hours of service over the past 19 years, advocating for and supporting families affected by the criminal justice system. She began volunteering with MUM in 1999 and was one of the first volunteers in the Family and Reading Connections program.

Mary serves MUM in several capacities. She regularly travels to a local prison, bringing children to visit their incarcerated mothers and maintaining family connections. She is active in MUM’s Circles of Support, which provide mentorship and support for citizens transitioning from prison back into the community. She has also served on the MUM Board for the last nine years. Mary’s work was featured in Brava magazine in July.

Mary is also the July 2018 winner of the Jefferson Award, a national award recognizing the dedication and service of volunteers who transform lives and strengthen communities across the United States. See her story on WKOW-27 here.
