Volunteer Spotlight

Our wonderful Welcome Baby volunteers never cease to amaze us!  We have wonderful people volunteer their time, expertise, and love to so many families in Utah County.  The more I work with our volunteers, the more I am impressed with their abilities. I really feel so lucky to have such a great team!

I know I've said this before, but our program WOULD NOT run without our volunteers.  They are the ones who visit our families, report back to us concerns, and support the individual families.  It's easy to get focused on numbers and office tasks, but when you stop and think about the combine hours these volunteers contribute to our program, it is overwhelming.

Recently, the Volunteer Recognition Program provided by the Utah Commission of Volunteers contacted us asking for a nomination of one of our great volunteers.  It was a difficult decision, but we nominated Tedi Palmer for her outstanding service to our community.

Tedi has been volunteering with us for over a year and does a wonderful job with our long term families. She is aware of each families needs, visits them monthly, and is so good to send volunteer reports.  Above all, she is so great to work with and truly has a love for helping families.

Thank you Tedi, we are so grateful for her help and support!
