Written on July 21, The nonprofit and helping professions are not known for their financial compensation but rather for being an outlet for the passionate goals of those who work in the field. It may seem like a thankless job at times, but anyone involved in day-to-day work with the community can attest to appreciation that community members have for the work we do. Usually, gratitude arrives at the most unexpected moment, just when you start to wonder how much of a difference you are really making.
At the Oakwood Community Center, in the heart of the Oakwood Forest mobile home community, site coordinator Brianna Higgins and her crew of AmeriCorps members and volunteers were surprised by a handwritten, heartfelt thank you letter sent by the parent of two of the children to whom the community center provides afterschool tutoring and educational enrichment opportunities.
Your presence in the tutor center makes the children in Oakwood Forest feel at ease learning and understanding school and social issues, that without your help and kindness would be impossible to accomplish. Helping Gianna with her sight words enabled her to be promoted to the 1st grade. Thank you all for your time, dedication and compassion.
Especially thankful for Amanda Blevins and her kindness to our children here in Oakwood Forest. Sincerely, Kimmarie. I worked closely with Nicole and Gianna. Nicole is a bright young woman who is very interested in the sciences. Gianna is a kindergartner who is in the beginning of her school career. Both are very smart, but only Nicole really loves school. I have encouraged Gianna to practice her sight words and hope one day she will have a love for learning, just as her older sister does.
I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to work with this family and all the other families. Not just the basics we need to conduct our day-to-day service, but their gifts, challenges and how they interact as a family. This is just an example of what we receive when we create authentic relationships with the families we serve.
