helpingOur volunteers are becoming community stewards at many levels. Read about how Becky Pitts, a current volunteer, has made a special birthday for her friend Ester, http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/09/friend_on_cheerleading_squad_h.html.
Becky has volunteered at Therapy and Fun for more than ten summers. She says, “It feels great to be helping children with their therapy and it just feels natural to be friendly to kids at school, too.” Becky’s enthusiasm and goodwill is creating a better community.
Former volunteer Carla Kaiser is helping bring fresh food to inner city neighborhoods. Carla volunteered at Therapy and Fun for eight years. Then, as paid staff she helped coordinate volunteers and contributed her art and design to our literature. We are very proud that her work in the nonprofit arena continues.
