Volunteers Make It Work

Sharon

These kids need Sharon. And they need you. Will you help us give kids a brighter future with your donation?

Sharon Wise might have retired as a school secretary, but she just can’t shake her desire to help the teachers around her. When a friend asked her to volunteer at the Teacher Store in Elkhart, Indiana, she didn’t hesitate — and she’s been going back ever since. Sharon says, “Seeing and visiting with the teachers, having worked at Elkhart Schools for over 30 years, I still feel like I am a part of it.” Feed the Children is happy to have her. Volunteers like Sharon help make programs like the Teacher Store a success. “It makes me feel useful and gives me a reason to surround myself with educators who are teaching our children,” she says. Sharon understands the value of giving some of her time to make sure kids have the best shot possible at a good education.
