October Featured Advocates: Capitol Hill Day Volunteers
By Erica Burman on Monday, October 3rd, 2011
More than 30 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers offered their time in the days leading up to, during and following our 50th Anniversary Capitol Hill Advocacy Day. Together, these individuals donated more than 500 hours of time to help make sure our Advocacy Day got the week-long celebration off to a good start!
Volunteers (and some friends they dragged along!) helped to prepare, write and proofread materials included in information packets. They also stuffed more than 1,000 folders for advocates and congressional offices! That’s not all. They assembled nametags, made phone calls, staffed registration tables, assisted advocacy day participants and took on any and all tasks with a spirited selflessness that kept us moving along.
There is no doubt that each of these volunteers were a critical component to the success of the day. They include: Tad Baldwin, Tino Calabia, Marilyn Charles, Melissa Cohen, Nathan Danielsen, Yvonne Darensbourg Melissa Dentch, Jocelyn Fong, David Grant, Natalie Hall, Jeannie Harvey, Alexandra Hitchens, Bob Hoffman, Haley Lynn, Harriet Lipowitz, Angel Nawrot, Pat Nyhan, Julia Oliver, Dina Paxenos, Mary C. Pendleton, Rachel Ripps, Julie Roemele, Andrea Seikel, Susan Shaw, Rueben Simmons, Gail Thomas, Mary Thorne, Doug Wade, Pat Wand and Ed Willett (our sincere apologies if we are missing anyone!).
