What’s it’s like to be an IMPACT volunteer
Here’s a message from one of our IMPACT volunteers.
Hi St. Lukers!
Joan Weninger here! My husband and I have been members of St. Luke’s for four years. I’ve been asked to tell you why I enjoy volunteering at Maxey Elementary.
From the time I walk down the hall and into a classroom I feel joyful and grateful to have the opportunity to serve. I can’t believe I’m doing the Lord’s work! But that’s the nature of God. Whatever you do in His name, the more He gives back and I sure feel it!
Children are always thrilled to have someone walk into their classroom who cares enough to spend the time to be a cheerleader for them. This past year and a half has put a cramp in my style but I’m looking forward to being part of the Maxey scene again this year, fully vaccinated, mask and all! So, who wants to give and receive some joy?
If you would like more information about volunteering at Maxey Elementary or Mollie Ray Elementary School, please contact Amy Winslow at email@example.com.
As the world becomes smaller and more diverse in culture and experience, the books on our “wishlist” foster social and emotional learning and promote self-esteem, spark conversations and build empathy. YOU can make an educational IMPACT without leaving your home!
