Volunteer Spotlight: Kaitlin K.
How did volunteering and donating become part of your life?
K: I started donating through my school, Morton High School. The junior class is currently working on a project called “Be the Change”. The idea is to change something around the community or some students are even taking it globally.
K: We’ve had foster kids through the agency and we’ve adopted 3 of the 7 foster kids. I chose CFYS because we were one of the families that needed the supplies and I wanted to put it back in.
(ADOPT/FOSTER) How has that impacted your life?
K: “It brings such joy to our lives and I can’t imagine not having them in our family”.
Who/What inspires you? Why?
My parents have always been an inspiration, especially with their work in foster care.
