Meet Our Dedicated Volunteer Ellen!

Meet Our Dedicated Volunteer Ellen!Ellen

Four years ago, Ellen’s daughter volunteered in the computer lab at Thrive DC. She told her mom that she would enjoy working in the kitchen. She’s been a Breakfast Program volunteer ever since!

On a typical Thursday morning, Ellen loves to help in the kitchen – unless she has to cut onions.

Ellen also enjoys greeting and signing in clients. She gets to see them again and again, watching clients become her friends. She’s happy to see clients and clients are happy to see her.

When asked why people should volunteer at Thrive DC, Ellen said, “There’s a community here.”

The staff consistently shows respect and kindness to their clients. They are also organized, having a broad range of services and referrals like showers, laundry, and a mailing address.

It’s clear to Ellen that we’re in it for the long haul.

 

Thanks to our Volunteer Coordinator Kelly Close for conducting the interview.
