Crafting Moments of Joy

Kenneth’s volunteer role transcends mere tasks; it’s about creating meaningful experiences. Whether he’s sweeping the floors to free up staff time or engaging clients in a game he invented called “Snake Bite,” Kenneth’s approach is rooted in compassion and innovation.

Volunteering does take effort but the reward that you get is so well worth it. I cannot describe how great it can make you feel. The reward is so fantastic I cannot put it into words.
