Volunteers Make a Difference at Nashville CARES
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Volunteer, Audrey Jenkins, worked 25 years as a staff member for representatives in the Tennessee State Legislature. After retiring, she was anxious to dive head-first into helping her community. After hearing about the impact Nashville CARES has on the community, she was interested in joining our team!
“I wanted to do something to give back to the community I had been living in most of my life,” said Audrey. “I enjoy getting out of the house and spending time with the wonderful staff at CARES.”
Audrey is primarily responsible for administrative duties and greeting guests at the front desk reception. She especially enjoys assisting clients who come through the front entrance looking for help. She benefits from knowing her work as a volunteer makes a meaningful impact on the services we offer to clients at Nashville CARES.
When Audrey isn’t volunteering, she enjoys watching Ohio State football. She is our biggest Buckeye fan and you can be sure to find her volunteering in her game day red in the fall. She also enjoys spending time with her friends and taking care of her Dog, “Lulu,” and her cat, “Fancee.”
If you are interested in volunteering your time to help your community please contact our Volunteer Manager, Amy Walter, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615-259-4866.
