Showing Our Volunteer Appreciation

At Any Baby Can, we celebrate our volunteers all year round. Our volunteers go above and beyond and we are grateful for all that they do, which is why we are thrilled to recognize them, especially during Volunteer Appreciation Week!

We would like to take the time to acknowledge, Bryan Sieffert who has been volunteering at Any Baby Can since 2015. Here is Bryan’s story:

“Being a volunteer for Any Baby Can has given me some wonderful experiences.

One of the experiences that has given me the most personal satisfaction was picking up a donated washer and dryer from a donor.  Seeing how happy the donor was that he was going to help a family in need was absolutely priceless. It was even more inspiring once I delivered the washer and dryer to the recipients and felt the appreciation of the family.

As a volunteer, there is no better feeling than hearing first-hand the ways that a family received help when they didn’t know where else to turn.  At every community outreach event I have participated in, I have heard at least one success story from a past client.

Community outreach events give us the opportunity to connect with potential new clients in exciting ways, like showing kids how caterpillars turn into butterflies. While the kids are enthralled with that (and many of the parents too), we get the opportunity to talk to the adults about services we provide.

There are many opportunities to educate the community and help raise support, such as  decorating onesies for babies, finger painting with kids at St. Baldrick’s, and helping with the silent auction at Rockin’ Round Up, which have all been fulfilling experiences.

You don’t have to be an expert – you just have to care.”

From the bottom of our hearts, the Any Baby Can team would like to say thank you to Bryan and each of our amazing volunteers. You truly help us help parents raise healthy and happy children.
