Volunteering through the Years: Kerrie Rickert
We are so grateful for the volunteers who have made our work at MOM possible for 40 years. To celebrate MOM's 40th anniversary, we're sharing a few stories from some of our most dedicated long-time volunteers. Here are some of Kerrie Rickert's memories of volunteering at MOM:
I have been a volunteer in the clothing closet at MOM for over ten years. I got involved after I heard about the volunteer opportunities from a friend. When I started volunteering 10 years ago, the set-up was similar but on a much smaller scale. There would only be a couple volunteers in the clothing closet during each shift, instead of three to four in the new location. The quantity and variety of clothing/household items is much greater now, and the new building provides enough space to do so. Also, the parking lot in the new location is much improved.
I really have enjoyed volunteering at MOM. The volunteers I work with are wonderful, and the clients are so nice and very appreciative of what we do. I always look forward to helping out each week, and feel good afterwards. Volunteering is a very rewarding experience.
