Community Hero Spotlight: Sheri Hunt

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.


Community Hero Sheri Hunt


December 2017 Community Hero

Sheri Hunt has been working as the director of service for the Nantucket Office of Elder Services of Cape Cod and the Islands for 17 years. Humble and quiet, Sheri does her work with little fanfare. In a single day, Sheri oversees the local staff and volunteers to ensure the delivery of 30-35 Meals On Wheels, with an additional 20-25 meals to be served at the Senior Dining Center. Sheri works with more than 50 seniors, providing the case management to oversee the 465 hours of service a week provided to them through Elder Services of Cape Cod and the Islands.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Sheri will be sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to Elder Services of Cape Cod and the Islands.


Thank you, Sheri, for your dedication to the island’s senior residents.
