Lindsey Hansen, our Central America Program Director in St. Louis, shared this update before the Thanksgiving holiday:
“Today I had a high school volunteer, Owen, come into the warehouse to help me sort supplies. He started on this task with me weeks ago and has already put in almost 6 hours on just this one task! He messaged me last night asking to see if he could spend some of his Thanksgiving break helping in the warehouse. He shared that since he started this task with me, he wanted to make sure he saw it through to completion — even if it means coming in on his time off from school. His goal is to get the whole warehouse sorted and organized by the end of the year! We are so thankful to have such dedicated and motivated volunteers on our team, like Owen!”
Thank you, Owen — and to all of our volunteers who give so much to help change kids’ lives!
