Last month, we debuted our volunteer spotlight article. Our volunteers assist us with various tasks and projects in the ZOE USA office. All of our volunteers have such an amazing heart to serve. Some of our volunteers find out about our organization through friends, school, the local Santa Clarita Magazine or just by word of mouth! Many have a heart to combat human trafficking and want to somehow get involved. We are blessed with the amazing, dedicated people that God has sent our way. Thank you all ZOE Volunteers!
How did you find out about ZOE?
I heard a KKLA radio station host talking about ZOE and the work ZOE does
What made you want to volunteer?
A couple of weeks before hearing about ZOE on KKLA, I attended a church sponsored conference on human trafficking. Over the following days, I learned more and knew I needed to help to make a difference in whatever small way I could. All the organizations were geographically too far to volunteer on a regular basis. When I learned that ZOE’s office was only 15 miles away, a friend and I visited and as they say, “the rest is history!”
How long have you volunteered at ZOE?
Since mid-March 2011
What type of tasks do you do at ZOE?
I regularly process the mailings of Thank You letters to the ZOE supporters. Additionally, whatever task and projects are to be done are prioritized/completed from packing, printing, sorting, research, other.
Tell us about your overall experience in the office?
From the first day which was introductory, I sensed that loving, kindness hsared by and for each person in the office. As I spent more time in the office with everyone, I simply wanted to carry the feelings of me outside the office! Contagious would be a good word description.
Have you learned anything new while volunteering?
I’ve learned how joy can come from darkness. The staff, volunteers, missionaries and especially the children have taught me how the little things and bigger things of God’s goodness counts above all things.
THANK YOU SHARON FOR ALL YOUR COUNTLESS HOURS HERE AT THE OFFICE! WE APPRECIATE YOU!
