1) How are you connected to GiGi’s Playhouse? I was introduced by my sister Linda Shute who was on the first Board. My nephew Matt attends GiGi’s.

2) What free programs do you volunteer for? I lead the adult cooking club, I volunteer for special events, and I participate in Truck or Treat. I have helped with the walks, all the Galas, getting donations for baskets, and the winter dances.

3) What is your favorite part about volunteering? My favorite part of GiGi’s is the atmosphere…feels full of love and like family. And…I saw what was around for Matt when he was a baby and I see what GiGi’s has to offer….and it MAKES A DIFFERENCE! I want to be part of that difference 😍
