Taking Flight:  What do you do in your volunteer role at the WCA?

Ann:  I do the logistical coordination for outreach events where we promote different aspects of the WCA, services, fundraising, and awareness. I enlist volunteers, manage display materials and ensure supply of printed materials. I have also worked on the Christmas Giving Tree project, Clothesline Project, Back to School, RAP Group reception, and many other events.

TF:  How long have you been a volunteer?

A:  Since 2005

TF:  What do you find most rewarding about your work at the WCA?

A:  The feeling that I make a difference. The congenial, grateful attitude of the staff makes me feel very appreciated.  This has not been true at many of my other volunteer positions. The philosophy of community awareness, care and concern of this organization is evident in all that goes on here

TF:  How have you changed or grown as a person through your work here?

A:  I am increasingly sensitive to how one person can make a difference. Exposure to the concept of abuse and its effects has made me even more aware of the importance of safety and education in helping women to be independent as well as financially and emotionally secure.
