Volunteer: a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task.
Volunteers are crucial to the work of several non-profits and PossAbilities is no exception. Whether it’s social interaction, event preparation/execution, or administrative tasks, the work of our volunteers is critical to help us fulfill our mission and achieve our vision.
In our inaugural Volunteer Spotlight, we’re featuring long-time volunteer, Brooke. Brooke is a nurse at Mayo Clinic and has been volunteering in our Seniors program for nearly two years now. She comes in weekly to spend quality time with the participants. It not only gives both Brooke and our participants positive social interaction, it also builds long-lasting relationships.
You may or may not know this, but our participants in Seniors LOVE to have parties. Brooke has been a big part of making those parties happen and also helped in planning for other aspects of the organization.
Recently, Brooke went above and beyond in her role as a volunteer. She secured a grant for our Seniors program and, because of it, the Seniors building will have a new and improved backyard!
When it comes down to it, Brooke is a true representation of our commitment to participants. She takes a person-centered approach, is engaged in the community, builds strong relationships with staff and participants, and shows professionalism to boot.
Thank you Brooke from everyone at PossAbilities. We are so grateful you’re a part of our organization. Our participants and staff are lucky to have someone like you so deeply committed to our mission and vision.
