Feld receives Silver Mic for service
Philip Feld, a resident of Central Phoenix since 1968, was named Silver Mic Award winner for extraordinary service to Sun Sounds of Arizona at its recent annual volunteer recognition event.
For 21 years, Feld has been a volunteer reader at Sun Sounds of Arizona, a radio reading service for people who cannot read print due to a disability.
“I love to read out loud, and I love the power of the spoken word. The fact that I use my voice to help people is just icing on the cake,” says Feld.
Feld has read aloud on programs like The Arizona Republic, Sun City News, Job Opportunities, Western Short Stories, and A Good Book, as well as substituting whenever asked.
“If I won Powerball today I wouldn’t change a thing,” says Feld, who retired from the printing business to dedicate himself to serving his community. In addition to the several hours a week he spends reading at Sun Sounds, Feld also volunteers 10 hours a week at the reception desk at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
