Highlighting Two of Our Young Volunteers
Volunteering has no age limit.
Julie Irvine and Anahelene Taylor started a project for The Children’s
Place in August of 2015. Since then, they have visited one local church
every month in order to help spread the word about child abuse in Alaska
and how TCP helps prevent and treat it. Ana and Julie talk to the congregations of the churches they visit at the beginning of the month about their
mission. Then they set up a spot for donations to be dropped off throughout the month, if people so choose. Mainly though, they wished to speak
to as many people as possible about the epidemic of child abuse in Alaska. Both young ladies are very excited about service and the work they
are doing with TCP. They also agree the feeling of bringing a car-load of
donations to TCP is as of yet unmatched. They are grateful to be helping
the kids in their community through this project.
