Congratulations to Kelsey Jackson, April’s Incredible Volunteer of the Month Spotlight!
Kelsey joined our Family Promise team in 2010 as our Montana State University Saturday Coordinator Intern. Kelsey is responsible for managing our Day Center and spending quality time with our families every Saturday from 9:30am-5:30pm!
Kelsey is a Montana State University student pursuing a degree in Community Health and a minor in Business Administration as well as a Leadership Fellow. In her free time she enjoys running, hiking, playing with her wiener dog , cooking and drinking coffee. Kelsey is also involved in MSU’s BreaksAway program. During her spring breaks she and fellow students travel to another location and volunteer. She has traveled to New Orleans to help with the on going hurricane relief and San Francisco to serve meals at a homeless shelter. Kelsey serves as the Family Promise MSU liaison. The Montana Campus Corps initiative helps her facilitate education and awareness on campus. As part of this program, she is also in the unique position to engage students, staff, and faculty to become volunteers or otherwise involved with Family Promise.
Kelsey has become a vital part of our team! She is a positive role model for our families. Kelsey’s presence at our Day Center every Saturday is consistent-something our families crave. She has turned Saturday’s into a fun day for our families. Many Saturdays have become day trips to Hyalite Canyon for family hikes, trips to the bowling alley, summer afternoons at the park and educational trips to the Museum of the Rockies! We were awarded at $1,000 grant this year to fund these healthy family activities. Our families trust Kelsey and look forward to spending this day with her every week! We are exceptionally grateful for Kelsey’s positive attitude, reliability and enthusiasm to spend time with our homeless families with children.
Congratulations, Kelsey, for becoming our very first Volunteer of the MonthSpotlight in honor of April as National Volunteer Month! We are lucky to have you on our team!
