Volunteers at Work

October 13, 2017

How awesome is it when someone offers an extra set of hands, when they provide needed help?

We think it’s REALLY awesome!

Crystal is a Speech Therapist at a school nearby but wants to help us too. She is amazing, coming in twice each week after her OWN school day to help the teachers and therapists here at Crossroads Center for Children by pitching in with laminating, copies, cutting and pasting and creating materials. She’s a phenomenal help, and we’re so lucky to have her!

Crystal also helped with our recent Mulching Day on the playground, as well as donating 12 bags more of mulch and bringing her husband over to apply the mulch the day after, because more was still needed.

Further, Crystal has donated to our program to purchase Learning Without Tears materials for the school year, because she sees how great of a curriculum it is and wants to help us achieve it.

She says she loves being a volunteer here. “Everyone is so friendly and happy. It’s great to be able to contribute, and I love what you do here. I love the ABA!”

We’re so glad she’s here to help us, always with a smile and positive words. We love having her here!
