Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Holly Fukumitsu

Holly joined the team in June 2018 and has gone above and beyond as a volunteer. She single-handedly assembled our new birthday party kits and regularly makes gift bags. She also made the scarecrows featured in the garden and rolled hundreds of newspaper rolls for one of our special programs. Holly also helps keep our art studio running smoothly and helps maintain our garden.

Holly is pictured here with “Rosie and Joe” (the scarecrows she made for the garden)
