Nancy and Yoisy

This month HCC would like to shine a huge spotlight on HCC volunteers Nancy and Yoisy.

Nancy, was born in Michigan, but has lived in Arizona most of her life. She is married with and has four adult children and eight grandchildren. Nancy spent the past year volunteering at HCC West Phoenix and continues to serve weekly in our boutique. She first learned about HCC after attending a field trip to HCC North Phoenix with her grandchildren.

Nancy told us, “My grandchildren still talk about our HCC field trip and their serving experience! They really enjoyed it!” Nancy works tirelessly in our clothing boutique making sure families find their desired clothing items, their correct sizes and favorite colors! Her favorite part of being involved with HCC is truly being able to help families in need and sharing the love of Jesus. When we asked Nancy what her advice would be to others who are thinking about volunteering at HCC West Phoenix she said, “Just do it! It is truly a blessing to volunteer at HCC, helping others and meeting many amazing people!”

The second rockstar volunteer we’d like to highlight this month is Yoisy, who volunteers monthly at our Maryvale location. Yoisy, is a math major and is completing her bachelor’s degree. She began volunteering with HCC in 2017. Yoisy’ s sister introduced her to the mission and work being done at HCC. “My sister told me that HCC needed volunteers and really needed volunteers who spoke Spanish and I’ve been volunteering ever since!” added Yoisy.

Yoisy began volunteering in the lobby at HCC, greeting families and helping to translate for our check-in desk. Today you can find Yoisy working in all areas of HCC! She’s a pro at shopping with families in our mini-marts, assisting families in our boutiques and even helping process donations. Yoisy told us, “I love being able to help people in any way I can. Every time I finish a shift at HCC, I feel rewarded that I was able to bring some good to the families I met and served! I’ve learned so much at HCC and want to encourage others to treat everyone with kindness, as we never know what a family may be going through.”

Our centers cannot operate without the hours of service from volunteers like Nancy and Yoisy! All of us at HCC sincerely thank these strong ladies for their amazing servant’s attitude and their hard work.
