Every week, Marcia volunteers her time to play games, make crafts, and get to know the kids in the Crisis Nursery. When the nursery was extra busy, she even helped with bedtime routines to make sure every child got a good night's rest.
Marcia first became involved in YESS' mission two years ago when she needed to complete volunteer hours for a class. Once the class was over, she continued her volunteer role and today is one of YESS' most dedicated volunteers.
"Not all students who complete service hours are like Marcia," said Jana, YESS Community Activities Manager. "She relates to the kids so well, and she is willing to help however she can. I'm so glad that her time as a volunteer continued beyond the requirements for her class."
“It’s the kids that inspire me to keep volunteering," Marcia said. "As a future social worker, I believe that each life of a child is precious, and they all need love and nurturing to find a better tomorrow.”
