Many folks tell us they love the energy and sense of community they feel when they walk into the Center, and super-volunteer Jessica Yehle is no different. “It’s used so heavily by so many different groups,” she says, “and it’s great to see all that happening. As a volunteer, I appreciate the ability to be involved in so many different programs.”

Over the last several years you might find Jessica helping in the food pantry with her kids, assisting with the school supply drive, coordinating Gallery Night, and at this time of year, helping to organize the holiday gift program. We’re gearing up for one of our biggest years yet, and we couldn’t do it without helpful, thoughtful, committed volunteers like Jessica. Fortunately, when asked what she is looking forward to this holiday season, Jessica replies, “I’m excited to help the fabulous Cristina with the holiday gift program again!”
