Tell me a story
Last week, I wrote about how this blog is changing directions. From now on, you can expect to read about two topics:
- Stories about you – individual volunteers, donors and community partners from the GrowingGreat community
- Innovative activities and ideas that you, individual volunteers, donors and community partners are willing to share with the community to make it stronger
So, where should we start?
In a planning meeting last week, Jennifer said, “The child’s world changes because the parent changes.”
Even though I’ve only worked for this organization for two months, I have already witnessed this phenomenon many times; parents working with GrowingGreat resources routinely captivate children’s imaginations and motivate them to make healthier choices.
So, for the rest of the calendar year, we want to recognize parent volunteers, who are the heartbeat of GrowingGreat, by posting stories about the amazing ideas and activities they create.
If you are a parent that volunteers with GrowingGreat (or know someone else who is) and you want to be recognized (or recognize someone else), please contact me by filling out the form below.[Form id=”15″]
