Volunteer Spotlight: G.G. Crawley
24th of March 2017
This month’s volunteer spotlight focuses on G.G. Crawley, who lives in Upland and works at the School of Social Work at Cal State San Bernardino. G.G. recently helped in our warehouse taking inventory of toys, which will be used throughout the year for birthday gifts for children in foster care.
What are your favorite pastimes?
Playing with my grandchildren, reading books to them, putting together puzzles and I really enjoy acting in plays.
Where did you go to school and what was your major?
I graduated from Southern University in Social Welfare and from Louisiana State University (LSU) with my master’s degree in social work.
What inspired you to volunteer at the Children’s Foundation of America?
Children are dear to my heart and any organization that extend services to making the life of a child better, I will to offer support.
What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with us so far?
The fact that I can work with a team of other volunteers and get a job accomplished.
What’s your favorite memory from volunteering at the Foundation?
Right now, it is sorting toys in the warehouse and documenting each item. It was great seeing young students spend time assisting also.
Why would you encourage others to volunteer?
There is an intrinsic value in serving others. The feeling is unexplainable. We will generally volunteer for things we would not consider being paid for as a job and feel really good about the experience.
Is there anything else you would like to share with your fellow volunteers?
Volunteers are essential participants in operation of many nonprofit organizations. If you can help out, the organization is always grateful and appreciative.
