Excellence in Community Service
Tina Sellers, Director of Asset Protection, Retail Business Services, an Ahold Delhaize Company
“During my career, I’ve benefitted from moving around the country learning different cultures and geographies,” said Sellers. “I’ve had great mentors and leaders to learn from, but I’ve also been fortunate to lead teams of hard-working, professional people every step of the way. I enjoy giving back. I feel so blessed to have had the career and life that I’ve had, and am driven to help others move ahead as well.
“When I came to Delhaize America, I learned more about the hunger crisis in our own country, where 41.2 million people live in food-insecure households. That’s when I began to volunteer with Food Lion Feeds, packing food staples for those in need. This was truly an awakening to the needs of my own community, where I’ve volunteered to serve meals, donated food for holiday distribution, packed school backpacks with food and school supplies, and collect all the travel toiletries from my work travels to donate to our local shelter. Our loss prevention team also recently helped build a house with Habitat for Humanity, and some of us participated with the Food Lion leadership team to set a Guinness World Book of Records for making over 10,000 bagged lunches in one hour.
“Always do something that feeds your spirit. Find time to do whatever recharges you, and you’ll be better at work, in your community, and even within your own family. But leave room for community work—as asset protection professionals we’re called to serve, and our lives are more fulfilled when we do.”
