September HOPE Hero - 2021

Lois - HOPE Volunteer

Our HOPE Hero for September is one of our phenomenal HOPE volunteers! Lois has been a valued member of our volunteer team and we can’t express how thankful we are to have her! She has played a role in making HOPE Chest Thrift Store become a place of positivity and happiness for survivors and local shoppers. Every day that Lois comes in, she has a fantastic time and goes above and beyond at helping.

What have you learned while volunteering at HOPE?
Lois: Since I started volunteering with HOPE, I have a better understanding of the scope of services that HOPE provides to local survivors. It makes me proud to be part of the HOPE Chest team.

What motivates you to volunteer with HOPE?
Lois: For starters, personal experience as well as, being a part of a dedicated and fun-loving team. Before volunteering with HOPE Chest Thrift Store, I had shopped there many times. Since then, it has transformed into the bright and cheerful place we all know it to be and I hope I can help keep that energy around.

What would your pet say about you if we asked for a reference?
Lois: That I am the ultimate human parent: tender, caring, fun, great cook, and warm cuddled. Above all else, I keep her safe.

Describe the most incredible view you’ve ever seen.
Lois: The sunset on the beach at Punta Del Nita, Nayarit, Mexico! I was lucky enough to see the “green flash” as the sun sank on the horizon. Absolutely incredible!

What’s your pizza order?
Lois: A New York-style white pizza with clams, garlic, and bacon… Heavenly!

We truly appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to our mission!
