The Patch thanks our dedicated volunteers!

Posted by on May 13, 2013 in Stories from The Patch

On Thursday, May 9,  Holladay Hall played host to Cabbage Patch volunteers and the staff and Cabbage Patch youth who came to thank them for their dedication to our mission to “profoundly change lives.”

In 2012, 1,257 individual volunteers gave more than 15,800 hours of their time to supporting programs and services at The Cabbage Patch Settlement House. This tremendous support has a direct impact on programs and services offered, as Pam Satterly, our volunteer coordinator explained.

“Volunteers are the life and breath of The Cabbage Patch,” Pam said. “Without their dedication of time and talents we would serve less children and offer fewer programs.”

Each semester, Pam coordinates a dinner to specifically thank and highlight our volunteers. Volunteers who were able to attend include:

  • Jenna Bushong, a student at Sacred Heart Academy (Educational Opportunities Volunteer)
  • Tasneem Karim, a student at DuPont Manual High School (Educational Opportunities Volunteer)
  • Ally Schamaun, University of Louisville Student (Recreation/Youth Development Volunteer)
  • Leslie Ellis (Educational Opportunities and Recreation/Youth Development Volunteer)
  • Kate Holwerk (Recreation/Youth Development & Educational Opportunities Volunteer)

Each volunteer received a certificate from Governor Steve Beshear’s Office, thanking them for their service.
