Planned Parenthood Federation of America honored the Rev. Dr. Marvin Marsh of Pottstown's First Baptist Church and his wife Terryl Marsh with the organization's nationwide Volunteers of the Year Award recently.

Dayle Steinberg, CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, introduced the couple to the audience at Planned Parenthood's National Conference in Washington, DC.

The two have donated over 2,600 hours of service to Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, which serves Philadelphia, Chester, Montgomery and Delaware Counties.

“What makes Rev Marsh and Terry Marsh so extraordinary and worthy of this national recognition is the vast array and sheer diversity of support they offer and the 100 percent effort they give to all they do,” said Steinberg.

Rev. Marsh has served on PPSP’s board of directors for the past seven years. 

In their time volunteering, the couple has raised the volume of the community’s progressive religious voices through involvement in advocacy initiatives, including grassroots activities, media outreach, and visits to elected officials. 

 Rev. Marsh hosted a workshop for clergy on reproductive loss, recruited new clergy supporters, and instituted the first clergy internship at PPSP. 

 Having Marvin and Terryl in the Surgical Center weekly greatly enhances the patient experience, and both patients and staff express immense gratitude to the two for their presence and sensitivity.

PPSP is grateful for the Marshes' ongoing contributions and celebrates Planned Parenthood's national recognition of their work.
