What has been your favorite part of volunteering with Avenues?
Our favorite part of being involved with Avenues has been the same since "day one"...sharing our life with our Avenues friends. Over the many years, we have shared excitement and challenges. We truly are "friends" who talk about anything and everything with ease. We enjoy playing games together and learning new things. We just like being with each other!
You have had an opportunity to mentor so many young adults through the Tuesday Night Friends group, why do you think volunteerism is so important for this generation?
We believe volunteering should be a foundation of life and needs to be nurtured and encouraged by family, friends and peers. We know that you get much more in return than the effort you give. It is important for each of us to encourage the next generations that "giving back" is expected and rewarding. We are very proud of the young people, who over the years have been a part of Tuesday Night Friends. They are kind, giving, hardworking and caring and many of them have gone on to work with individuals with special needs individuals
