Congratulations to Jennie Baird, our Volunteer of the Month for October.
Jennie has come twice a week for the past year and a half to organize and store all of the donations that are given to CCC, and gratefully there are a lot of them. She takes care of all of the various donations of personal hygiene items, toys, books, blankets, towels, etc. She is also of vital help to the clothes closet by taking all of the clothes that are dropped off in the office over to the closet – a lot of hard work taking cart after cart of heavy items over there – and she helps to sort and organize clothing in the closet on a weekly basis. She is a real trooper and nothing is ever too heavy or too cumbersome for her – she just gets it done with a smile on her face.
Thank you Jennie for all you do for CCC. A special thanks also goes out to Jessica Stokes who helps Jennie sort the donations we receive.
Volunteers are the life blood of the shelter. Most of what happens here could not happen without our volunteers.
