Breaking Down the Language Barrier
Next week is National Volunteer Week, so we'll be highlighting some of our devoted volunteers who have dedicated many, many hours to helping babies and toddlers in need.
In the last year, we had 2,769 volunteers put in a total of 17,905 hours at Infant Crisis Services. That is commitment!
But many of these compassionate volunteers go above and beyond what is expected of them. Linda Suchak, for example, is learning Spanish to be able to better communicate with families when there is a language barrier. Any free moment she has, she is on the computer, practicing her Spanish using Rosetta Stone software.
Without our volunteers, Infant Crisis Services would not be able to serve the community to the extent that we do today. Thank you, Linda, and thank you to the 2,768 others who are helping us serve the tiniest members of our community.
