WCA Volunteer, Dawn CoderDawn Coder, WCA Volunteer

What do you do in your volunteer role at the WCA?

In my volunteer role I help support the WCA by attending events where I can involve myself to inform the community of who the WCA is and what services they provide.  I have also helped organize sponsorships programs such as Back to School and for Christmas families.

 How long have you been a volunteer?

I’ve been an active volunteer for about 10 years.

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

Knowing that I’m helping support families in need so they can get back on their feet and have the confidence to succeed.  Also helping to provide freedom to where they don’t have to live in fear.

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

I’ve grown to not take things in life for granted.  To be thankful for what I have and help others have the same opportunities.  To learn to adapt to changes because what is here today may not be there tomorrow!
