Volunteer Spotlight: Elizabeth Taylor
"I have volunteered for many organizations over the years and what has surprised me about ASK is that I wish I could do more. Not just the event where I am volunteering," shares Elizabeth Taylor, ASK volunteer. "I want to give as much time and energy as I can. I want to help as often as I can. I feel strongly tied to the organization even though I only spend a few days there a year."
Elizabeth has been a loyal volunteer for ASK's fundraising and program events. She has been behind the scenes for 10 years making sure registrations go smoothly at the ASK 5K & Fun Walk, Dunkin' Donuts Munchkins Run and the ASK Gala and that ASK kids and families have a good time at the annual holiday party.
"She’s the calm, smiling face in the middle of the chaos that so often comes with special events. She shows up early and stays late to make sure it all gets done and we can always count on her," says Amy Godkin, Executive Director.
Elizabeth doesn't look for recognition but rather where she can be most helpful. For her, it's all about the kids.
"I love seeing the faces of the kids as they see all the events are for them and that they are a part of them," Elizabeth notes. "ASK is an organization where everything goes back to the kids. The gala has items the kids painted as centerpieces. The walk has a Kourageous Kids lap to put a focus on the kids. There are events all the time just for the kids."
It's pretty easy to see why we think Elizabeth is a star volunteer. Such a star, that we recognized her dedication with the 2016 Payson Jones Outstanding Volunteer Award. Thank you, Elizabeth, for your kind support and helping hand!
