This month’s Volunteer Spotlight is on the Volunteer Program.
I have been a part of the ACTS team since September 2017; in my short time, I have had a lot of assistance making sure that our vast number of volunteers have undergone intake, feel appreciated and have information about our growing number of events and programs. I want to especially thank, Ethan Vick, who is a staff member and has been incredibly patient and helpful as I learned and developed within the Volunteer Program.
The volunteers I want to spotlight are new to my program as Group Leaders but not new to ACTS, as they worked previously under the manager of the Thrift Store for the last few years. The Group Leaders are Natita Knight and Anita Cooper.
The purpose of a Group Leader within this program is to assist groups during their day of service. Leaders also give instructions on “how” to volunteer, answer questions and review the impact of the volunteer work being done so you walk away with both an understanding and feel the appreciation we have for your time and effort.
Anita and Natita are perfect in this respect! They are always happy, engaging and full of life. There is no way you can have a bad day around these two! They make the task of sorting seamless and time flies so quickly when you are working with them. They are both reliable and eager to volunteer- even on holidays! They volunteer religiously on Saturdays- and I have had volunteers specifically ask about them when they are signing up for a day of service.
Thank you so much for your ongoing service to ACTS and the community, Anita and Natita. I am lucky to have you in my program!
