Why I'm a YWCA Volunteer
"As a Connecticut native it's always been important to me that our local communities thrive. My father grew up in New Britain, so it's a city that is close to my heart. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the tight-knit community of people who are passionate about the city and I am happy to be a part of that community by volunteering my time at YWCA New Britain. Serving on the board of directors of the YWCA has allowed me to have a role in advocating for their essential and reputable programs, such as childcare and teen programs, health and fitness, sexual assault crisis services and family literacy, to name a few. I also love to serve on the auction committee, to help plan the annual Evening of Treasures which raises money for all of these programs. Additionally, one of the most rewarding ways I've been able to participate was immersing myself in the day-to-day activities of the organization and capturing them through documentary-style photography." -Allegra Anderson
