Meet Sharon!

We need to let everyone know that our volunteers are the heartbeat of every HCC shift! As HCC shifts continue to be remarkably busy, our centers need more weekly volunteers! This month we would like to highlight one of our amazing volunteers who recently answered the call to serve at our West Phoenix location!

Meet Sharon! Sharon, originally from the western suburbs of Chicago, has lived in Phoenix for the past five years. Relocating to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area with her life partner, John, she initially ran a computer software company and consulted with businesses looking for growth opportunities. Sharon started volunteering in November of 2021 as she always had a desire to get more involved with her local community and help others in need. After she transitioned out of the corporate world, she now had the time and opportunity to follow her passion. A neighbor told her about HCC, she researched us and has been volunteering ever since!

Originally Sharon was volunteering at our North Phoenix location, then switched to our West Phoenix location during our renovations. “Even though I travel 30-plus miles each way to get to HCC West Phoenix, I truly enjoy volunteering at the West location with a great group of seasoned volunteers and staff!” added Sharon who works as a personal shopper with families in our mini-marts.

When we asked Sharon what volunteering at HCC means to her, she replied, “The most rewarding part of volunteering is being able to give back to the community. The many ‘thank yous’ and smiles received from our families, especially from those who are visiting for the first time, is truly heartwarming! The families are grateful for the services HCC provides and I am proud to be a part of their team!”

Sharon encourages others to make it a point to volunteer, “I would encourage others to volunteer at HCC because you never truly know the circumstances a person may be going through in their life. HCC is a non-judgmental, supportive environment whose sole focus is to help those in need during times when they could use a boost of help!”

Sharon 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.

We invite YOU to get involved today and volunteer at HCC. Fill out a volunteer application here.
