Today’s volunteer in the spotlight is Drew Beck! “Drew is a High School student who has been committed to serving at the Canasta Familiar program since its inception and kick-off. His dedication to the community and willingness to serve resonates in his commitment to the distribution of food to participants during the last seven months. As a high school student, Drew could dedicate these Monday evenings to hanging with friends and or enjoying his senior year, however, he chooses to dedicate it to serving the community and taking the opportunity to utilize and practice his Spanish. We enjoy having Drew at the Canasta and wish him all the best in his future endeavors!”, said his supervisors, Janelle Calvo-Nieto and Carla Kohler.
Here’s what Drew had to say about what CLUES means to him: “I was assigned a Spanish project for school, so I began volunteering at CLUES as it was a place where I could complete this project. Eventually, my project ended, but I chose to continue to volunteer at CLUES because it had become a place where I wanted to be and where I got to connect with the community during my weekly volunteer shifts.”
We are lucky to have him as part of the CLUES family! Thank you to Drew and all our volunteers for your incredible service!
