Less than 20 people will have this weekly honor bestowed upon them this season and it's no mystery as to why Isabel was selected as a recipient.

Beyond her work in New Hampshire, she has also created an international nonprofit called Seeds of Hope that delivers vegetable seeds to schools, orphanages and churches in Africa, Pakistan, Haiti and Tonga.

The 'work in New Hampshire' references her tireless efforts in support of The NH Food Bank as well.

Back in the spring, when the pandemic was escalating, Isabel was concerned by the steep decline in donations and subsequent demand at the food bank. She organized a virtual 5K which took in over $4,000 in funds that resulted in nearly 8,500 meals being provided to people in need.

Isabel started volunteering in her hometown of Hampstead at age seven and has become a force for good, serving with multiple organizations through food drives, coat drives, crop walks and charity events.


Over the past three years, Isabel has been growing the scope of her efforts and recruiting new volunteers while leading high impact service projects. On Saturday mornings, you'll find her sorting, packing food boxes and helping the NH Food Bank distribute donations.

I'm so proud of Isabel representing The Granite State! Such a hardworking and thoughtful person! So well deserved!
