Jaci and Ava first starting volunteering for MountainStar in August of 2020 as flamingo flockers. It was the first year we had done the flamingo fundraiser as part of Birdies 4 Babies, and they were so helpful and patient as we worked through unexpected scenarios together.
Jaci and Ava returned with the rest of their family in the fall to help us rake leaves in our playground in Bend. Shortly thereafter, Jaci and Ava volunteered to organize our clothing closet, and it has never looked better!
Of course, they returned to flock more houses in August of 2021, and Jaci helped sort food for the Broken Top Food Drive last month. We received over 1,000 pounds of food, away Jaci and our other volunteers made sure it was all put away neatly as well as organized by expiration date.
Jaci and Ava are such reliable and amazing volunteers. Not only do they always give 100% to every volunteer project, they consistently check in to see if there is anything new they might be able to help with! Thank you both so much for all you do to support MountainStar!
