Volunteer Spotlight - Jackie Fallenstein

Jackie Fallenstein, Winter 2014 Featured Volunteer

Jackie Fallenstein has been a committed volunteer at St. David’s Center since 2012, after first becoming connected to the organization when her second child was born. Jackie’s son experienced developmental delays and, wanting the best for him, she sought out recommendations from friends. On her first visit to St. David’s Center’s facilities, she was delighted to see our commitment to inclusion. The toddler playground’s design of being built into the ground especially caught her eye.  She knew it would provide accessibility for her son to play and interact with his peers, and aid in his journey of learning to walk.

Wanting to give back to the place that’s given so much to her son, Jackie has played an active role in St. David’s Center’s volunteer efforts. She volunteered setting up for the 23rd and 24th annual St. David’s Center Make Them Shine Gala prior to enjoying those evening as a guest, and has plans to volunteer yet again in 2014 for 25th annual one.

This past December, Jackie also took part in the annual Basic Needs Drive. She was a key person in our drive efforts this year as she helped with coordination, communications, box wrapping, and item collection. Through her efforts and commitment we were able to help numerous St. David’s Center families in need with basic necessities such as diapers and toothbrushes during the holiday season. Along with these two volunteer opportunities, she has also helped with St. David’s Early Childhood Education picture day.

Jackie loves to volunteer because it makes her feel good to know that she is helping those in need. She volunteers with St David’s Center because of the happy, caring and enthusiastic staff with whom she has the opportunity to work. Jackie is a proud St. David’s Center volunteer and would recommend that others take the time to “get to know this special place better” through volunteering.
