Why I volunteer

“I feel very blessed by the life experiences that I’ve been offered in the way of work and travel. About eight years ago, I was looking for a way to involve my entire family in the local community. My husband Doug and I have three boys and we wanted them to understand that people all around Cleveland have different home experiences and needs. We became connected to Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland through a program called Soul to Sole, which focuses on providing Nike shoes to kids in need. We fundraise and recruit volunteers to distribute shoes. We’ve experienced many differences about life in the city, but at the end of the day, all kids want a hug and a caring adult to be interested in their life. This is the same, no matter where you live. And this is why I volunteer for Boys & Girls Clubs.”
