Volunteer of the Month

Thank you, Pete – UMCHS Volunteer of the Month for January, 2017

Pete coordinates 5 to 7 volunteers to read to the children each week. The children LOVE when the readers come and read to them. The readers read to the same few children and they go home with books every month. Pete coordinates the volunteers for 5 Head Start classrooms. They come Tuesday through Wednesday. He is always available and truly committed to volunteering and enriching the lives of these children.
