This week is #VolunteerAppreciationWeek! Every day this week, we are going to highlight some amazing volunteers and how they make Periwinkle a better place!
Today’s Volunteer Spotlight is on: Danielle Coleman! Danielle volunteers as a Camp YOLO counselor and is also on the Day Camp Committee. Outside of Periwinkle, she is a Childlife Specialist for TCH Hemotology Center. Danielle is a valuable asset to our programming and has an amazing way of connecting with campers. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication, Danielle!
Why does Danielle volunteer with Periwinkle? “I volunteer at Periwinkle Camps for the little moments! The moments of accomplishment, friendship, determination, and bravery each camper demonstrates at camp.” – Danielle
Why does our Staff Love Volunteers? “Volunteers like Danielle enable The Periwinkle Foundation to positively impact hundreds of campers and families through Camp Periwinkle, Camp YOLO, Family Camp and Day Camp. I am amazed and grateful for our volunteers’ dedication to making sure each moment is meaningful, impactful and a source of hope for our campers. Periwinkle’s growth and success over the last 35 years is a result of the thousands of little moments our volunteers’ have so lovingly counseled and crafted.” – Meredith, Program Coordinator
