Executive Director of the nonprofit Gifts For Our Community, Linda Glover was born and raised in Montana, and attended the University of Montana. There, she met the football player who would become her husband of now-47 years. They married, graduated, and moved to Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, where she worked as a teacher and elementary school principal for many years. When their daughter and her family moved to Vancouver, Linda and Jay moved here in 1995 to be closer to them. Although she loved education, she decided to use the move to do something different.
In Vancouver, Linda joined Gifts For Our Community by leading the nonprofit’s Holiday Shop. The organization’s current efforts to support Vancouver and Clark County in human services, education and the arts include Divine Consign, an upscale furniture resale shop and b. divine clothing boutique, an upscale resale clothing shop. For 20 years, Glover has led this organization that included multiple small businesses, each of which returns its proceeds to the community in the form of grants, furniture and clothing that re-invest in our community.
