Each month the HCC enjoys shining the spotlight on one of our amazing volunteers. This month we are thrilled to introduce you to our great friend, Patty. Patty is originally from Los Mochis Sinaloa and now lives in Phoenix. Patty has been a faithful volunteer for the HCC since 2015 after she first visited HCC seeking assistance for her family while she was temporarily out of work while her father was suffering from kidney cancer. As Patty continued to look for work she took up HCC on their offer to come in and volunteer on Wednesday mornings. Since the first shift Patty volunteered, she has been a blessing to the HCC and our clients. Patty can be seen many days greeting clients in our lobby, helping to keep our line flowing in a very organized fashion and translating prayers for those who speak only Spanish. Patty commented, “Volunteering at HCC allows me to show an attitude of service to others. It reminds me to be humble, reminds me to love others, and reminds me to try to truly understand the needs of my neighbors.”
Patty encourages others to make it a point to volunteer, “I’ve learned what sacrifice is and have been able to better teach that to my daughter, who often volunteers with me. I also feel great satisfaction after serving, knowing we are making a difference at HCC. I’ve greatly benefited from my years of volunteering. I have developed a more caring attitude, stronger self-esteem, and feelings of sincere gratefulness for all we do have. I have also made some great friends at HCC who have been there when I needed support!”
Patty has been welcomed into the Harvest Compassion family and we want to thank her publicly for her outstanding work ethic, dedication and the energy she pours into volunteering at the HCC.
