I’ve been volunteering in various programs since I was in high school. When I was a teen, I was involved in BBYO and participated in community service activities. What I learned early is that it really feels good to help others. As a young adult I was always involved in PTA and school activities with my children. I’ve been involved in an organization to help cancer patients and their families. Community service involvement through my synagogue has always been a part of my life and continues to be.
The Bookworms program has given me an opportunity to touch many young lives by enriching their learning experience in a way the children wouldn’t be exposed to if the program didn’t exist.If there is a need, it’s important to help. That’s what I’ve always believed. And I try to act on my beliefs. I have learned that if I need to feel good, I just have to open myself to helping others. The rewards are amazing!
