Ann Baker, Front Office Receptionist:

Ann is originally from Hertford, NC and moved to Washington in 1968 with her husband, Reggie.
She worked in the Beaufort County school system for 27 years. Reggie retired in 2006, and found a home volunteering at Eagle’s Wings.
Wanting to reach out to her community, when Ann retired in 2007, she joined Reggie at Eagle’s Wings.
With her extensive secretarial and clerical experience, she quickly found a home as the front office receptionist.

Ann’s position, welcoming new and returning clients, is the linchpin of the front office.

Through the years, she has witnessed tremendous growth at Eagle’s Wings, including the addition of walk-in refrigerators and freezers, and the change from manual client intake to computers.

However, she feels the most significant change was when Eagle’s Wings became a Client’s Choice pantry, enabling clients to choose the food which they prefer. Ann is an invaluable member of the Eagle’s Wings team!

Premier Partners are United Bank customers who share the bank’s commitment to empowering historically underserved areas and people, developing affordable housing options, supporting small business growth and revitalizing communities. United works with its Premier Partners to understand community needs, implement product recommendations and provide services that will better meet the needs of the community.

To help further advance the mission of each organization, United supports its partners through activities such as hands on volunteerism, fundraising, board membership and corporate giving. Through the partnership with Eagle’s Wings, many United team members serve as volunteers and also sit on the organization’s board and various committees, supporting the mission and vision for both the bank and the nonprofit. “We’re grateful to partner with United Bank as we work daily to alleviate food insecurity in Beaufort County.” Executive Director Ann-Marie Montague said. “Since the start of our partnership, the United Bank team has been hands-on. They continuously look for ways to support Eagle’s Wings and we look forward to continuing to serve the community with United Bank by our side.”
