Like mother, like daughter - two great volunteers
Cathy had been volunteering with us once a week in the clothing warehouse but when other opportunities came up, conflicting with her summer shifts at WIN, Cathy asked her daughter Mary if she wanted to take over her position for the summer. Mary had been involved in fundraising for WIN through a fashion show put on by students at her high school and felt passionate about the contributing to the community. Wanting to see what it was like behind the scenes, and to have something meaningful to do for the summer, Mary decided that volunteering was a good idea. I asked her what the experience is like for her and she said that it’s a great environment to work in where everyone is nice, and she appreciates the experience she is gaining. She finds that the tasks aren’t too hard, making it a good first job, and she loves to see all the different types of clothes that she comes across, like leopard print pyjamas!
