- What made you want to get involved with FGP?
- I read about FGP in the Free Lance Star and met with Andie! I also saw first hand how FGP can help a family and knew I wanted to get involved.
Has being involved with FGP made a difference in your life? If so, how?
- Absolutely - FGP is a family to me! Volunteering is rewarding! I also hope that my son is learning to help others by watching me volunteer.
- What would you say to describe FGP if someone asked who we are and what we do?
- I tell people that FGP is a nonprofit that helps families who have a child fighting cancer - providing meals, lawn service, house cleaning, gas cards for travel, photography services, etc. When a child is in treatment and a family needs to travel away from home (and sometimes for quite some time) - having the lawn mowed, house cleaned, and meals prepared can be very helpful to a physically and emotionally exhausted family. Their priority at that moment is their son or daughter. That is where FGP steps in.
For volunteers, what keeps you involved with FGP?
- The people and knowing that I'm making some sort of a difference from behind the scenes. The volunteers are amazing, loving, selfless people who are now my lifelong friends.
For Volunteers and Donors, can you describe your experience with FGP?
- The experience has been wonderful! I have witnessed many wonderful acts of kindness. I have seen people come together with a purpose to help others. I'm very proud of our community.
