Last week at our first ever virtual event “Stories from Home” virtual event, our volunteer manager, Kristi, shared how a very special volunteer stepped in and stepped up to make Jonah’s birthday one he will always remember!

One of the joys of my job is helping Door of Hope’s parents celebrate their kids’ birthdays. We normally partner with another non-profit that provides personalized homemade birthday cakes to help celebrate. But because of COVID-19, the non-profit we partner with decided to cease operations through May. A wonderful volunteer offered to buy and deliver store bought cakes to all our kids this month.

The day after Jonah’s birthday, one of our case managers sent me a text conversation with Jonah’s mom, ‘That’s so amazingly sweet of all of you. No one has ever, besides [my husband], offered to help me celebrate one of my kid’s birthdays. I appreciate it very deeply.

Moments like these are why I love serving Door of Hope families alongside wonderful volunteers! — Kristi, Volunteer Manager
