Meet Sophie!

Afterschool/Dinner Buddy and Food Pantry Stocker

How long have you been volunteering at the LCEC? 3 years

How did you first learn about the LCEC? I first learned about the LCEC because I pass it every day on my way to and from school. I also learned about it through my neighborhood and because I took a yoga class here when I was in middle school.

What do you like best about being a part of the LCEC community? I love how friendly, excited, and welcoming the community here is. I always feel like I’m a part of something and the kids and staff are excited to see me.

What’s your favorite book? Dreamland by Sam Quinones

What’s a song that makes you happy? “Build Me Up Buttercup”

What’s your favorite snack, candy or treat? Peanut butter ice cream

What’s something you are looking forward to this spring? I’m excited to spend time walking and running outside!

We rely on the contributions of more than 500 volunteers to make the LCEC the special place it is for kids, adults, and elders. If getting to know Sophie has inspired YOU to volunteer, we’ve got just the place for you. Match your interests with the right opportunity.
