2013 Volunteer of the Year: Amy Reed

Jul 2, 2013

Kids Club volunteers

We have so many volunteers at Casa Chirilagua and that makes our Volunteer of the Year difficult to select. Over the past school year, Casa Chirilagua recorded over 100 regular volunteers who contributed over 3,000 hours of service time…and that’s just the time we were able to record. We are sure there are thousands of hours more that were contributed but not recorded. Each year, we recognize one volunteer for his or her on-going commitment to Casa Chirilagua’s students and families.

2013 Volunteer of the Year: Amy Reed

This volunteer found Kids Club when we moved into Beverley Hills Community United Methodist Church. She has retired from compensated work but she never stops giving back to her community. Volunteering at Kids Club 2-3 times per week along with master gardening are a few of her many hobbies that keep her busy. This volunteer quickly weaseled her way into the heart of all of our students, particularly our 3rd grade boys who always asked to be paired with her. For her commitment, endless hours of volunteer time, and love for the Kids Club students, we name Ms. Amy Reed, the 2012-2013 Casa Chirilagua Volunteer of the Year.

We are a community of people “learning together to love our neighbors as ourselves” in a Latino neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.

As a faith-based Christian non-profit with a small staff and over 100 volunteers, we serve alongside more than 100 families and their children (1st-12th grades) each week through our community programs.

Our relational network of volunteers and donors reflects a diverse group of individuals from all over the Washington, D.C. metro area. As a non-profit, we rely on the community for assisting program directors on-site, being mentors, supplying the needs of our food pantry, and everything in between. Each member of our Casa community holds a unique gift, whether time, talent or treasure.
