Volunteers have 'the love of God and the drive to give back'
When I was younger I always looked up to my counselors at camp; I thought they had it all together and I wanted to be just like them. Now that I have the chance to be in the same position, I realize they didn’t have it all together, however, what they did have was the love of God and the drive to give back.
I’ve had the pleasure of volunteering at West River since 2008. When I started volunteering, I didn’t realize how much of an impact West River would have on my life. It’s true what they say about volunteering, you think you are going to make an impact on others, when in fact those same people make an imprint on you. Through volunteering, I’ve challenged myself, made long lasting friendships, gained a family, grew closer with God, inspired others and made a difference. I would not be the person I am today without having been a volunteer for nine years and for that, I will always consider West River a second home.
