Charity: Gift of Hope, Inc.
If you’re looking for Meghan Connell any time soon, you’ll more than likely find her working hard to see that no child in Taney County goes hungry on the weekends. As the Director of Gift of Hope through National Enzyme Company, Connell is responsible for coordinating nearly every function of the charity, whether that means making sure there’s enough volunteers to fill food backpacks or working with other non-profits toward similar goals. Connell said she believes a beautiful woman is sincere, caring and gives selflessly to those she encounters, something she clearly has down to a science given her mile-long list of philanthropic work. The former Miss USA Coordinator says her ultimate dream would be to work for TOMS shoes and continue finding passion in helping the less fortunate. In her free time, Connell enjoys boating on Table Rock Lake, going to the farmers’ market, working on new recipes, reading magazines and watching True Blood with her husband, Chad. An individual who is caring, loyal and loves deeply, Connell continually finds beauty in those who give their time and talent for the betterment of others, something she saw her mother exhibit first-hand as she grew up.—D.D.
