Highlighting one of our volunteer families - Meet the Johnston's
We have so many amazing volunteers. What's even more amazing is that we have families who volunteer together. Birthday Dreams is one of those charities that have volunteer opportunities for all ages. Parents and children can volunteer together. We are grateful for our volunteering families.
One of these amazing family of volunteers is the Johnston family: Ken, Karen and high school students David and Grace.
Thank you to the Johnston family for your support and choosing to donate your time to Birthday Dreams
They have been Birthday Dreams supporters for years. And have been regular attendees at our annual Gala. This year they started volunteering as a family with our Community Outreach team. Our Outreach team leads volunteer groups in fun activities like making party goodie bags, party hats, decorating birthday cards or other activities with corporate, social and/or civic groups.
Volunteering as a family increases your connection with each other while demonstrating the importance of service to your kids. And it gives you something to talk about as a family. Thank you to the Johnston family for supporting Birthday Dreams.
A few words from Ken:
"Volunteering is easy. Giving time, giving money, and giving support are easy. Knowing that you have touched a young life and brought back to them a moment of dream, of recognition, of potential and opportunity is a blessing. I think I volunteer with Birthday Dreams because their cause, our cause, crushes my heart and fills it back at the same time. Thank you, Birthday Dreams, for your simple, true, honest vision."
