Meet our April HCC Volunteer of the Month, Ann! She is a retired social worker with extensive experience working with various nonprofits around the world, as well as foster care licensing. She also taught English as a Second Language in various countries as she accompanied her husband, Paul, in his career with the United Nations. They have three children and three amazing grandchildren.

Meet Irene, HCC’s July Volunteer of the Month! The daughter of Mexican immigrants, Irene was one of eight children and went on to have three daughters. She built a career in early education and the optical business before retiring just before 2020.

Looking for a way to stay busy and make a difference, Irene began volunteering at Harvest Compassion Center with her daughter, Stephenie, and granddaughter, Emma. Over the past year, Irene has worked in all areas of our centers. She proudly shares that Stephenie is now an HCC employee, allowing them to spend even more time together.

When asked why she enjoys serving at HCC, Irene said, “I like talking to our clients and making them feel at home. I am grateful that HCC has the centers open to help those in need.”

Thank you Irene for helping us feed, clothe and love our community!
