Staff Reflections: Celebrating Our Volunteers
KYC Staff Reflections
Earlier in April, KYC celebrated our incredible volunteers with a pizza dinner. One KYC staff member, Tica, put her thoughts to paper as she reflected on the inspirational work they do each day.
Celebrating Our Volunteers
By: Tica King, KYC Adult Recovery Counselor
Bringing food to the hungry is a noble cause that saves lives. It’s what our meals on wheels volunteers do almost every day.
Kenneth Young Center celebrated our volunteers with an enjoyable pizza party just a week and a half ago. Our CEO, Grace, personally welcomed and thanked everyone touching many hearts in her gracious way. Our dedicated Board member, Abdullah, beautifully expressed his gratitude for the service and sacrifice of our caring courageous volunteers.
Tica, who overcame schizophrenia while working at Kenneth Young Center as a Peer Counselor, introduced two wonderful volunteers who work in the PSR recovery program. The first was Judy the Great, our Art Volunteer, who spoke of the miracles she has witnessed when clients discover the artist within. Magical Magda teaches our clients gentle exercise movements inspiring them to action, which is a key element in healing the mind. Delightful Donna spoke of the joy she finds in helping others in doing administrative work at KYC.
We thank Colette, our Volunteer Coordinator, for her hard work in preparing this event. If you aren’t already a volunteer, join us in making our organization and clients full of wonderful success stories. You do make a big difference in our lives.
