The Greater Millville Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its selection as the “Outstanding Citizen” for January 2015: Linda Green.


Green, this month’s recipient of the Chamber of Commerce’s Outstanding Citizen Award, has been involved with church and community service since she was a teenager in Fairton.


Even while attending Atlantic Community College, having three children and working as a medical technologist for some 40 years, Green devoted time to helping others.


She credits her mother and her church, the Seventh Day Adventist Church of Bridgeton, with her deep commitment to serving others. As a teenager, she read to the blind at her church.


Green moved to Millville from Bridgeton in 1975. She became active in the First Presbyterian Church in 1995, serving on the Board of Deacons, teaching Sunday School and participating in the outreach program, F.I.S.H., which delivered food to the needy.


A member of the Millville Woman’s Club since 2009, Green became president this May. Jane Christy, a former president and a recipient of the Chamber’s Pride in Millville award, describes Green as an energetic leader who has initiated a number of successful projects.


“The women are wonderful about helping,” said Green. She pointed out that the fund-raisers have made it possible to make some very needed repairs on the clubhouse and property, as well as to continue contributing to many worthwhile projects, including the state project of the N.J. Federation of Women’s Clubs, which is raising money for the National Alliance for Mental Illness.


Some of the other recipients are the Millville Public Library, scholarship to the Girls Career Institute at Douglass College, Family Promise, Christmas parade, Barn Studio of Art and numerous education-related projects.


Green’s involvement in other activities is awesome, her colleagues related. Green is a Big Sister in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem Counties, a volunteer at Mount Pleasant School, a volunteer for the Cumberland County SPCA, community service leader and youth leader at the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Through the church, she is working on a project called “God’s Closet, a national nonprofit organization that provides free clothes to children.


“I hope to open in May at the church and will be contacting other churches in the area to join our efforts in supporting the needy children in our community by donating clothing and volunteering,” she said.


Green and her husband Dominick have three grown children and two grandsons.
