She first learned about World Vision during a department retreat in 2015 when she helped pack kits for people in African countries affected by Ebola.
The IMF chose to partner with World Vision again—this time on a much larger scale—because the opportunity was an impactful way for IMF members to serve their own local community, as well as make a difference for those affected by a natural disaster far away.
In addition to packing kits filled with personal care items such as toiletries, washcloths, and soap, the volunteers were also able to write notes to share hope with kit recipients. This personal touch had a huge impact on the volunteers.
The IMF Giving Together team plans to recommend the volunteer opportunity to colleagues who constantly ask for ideas for departmental retreats, saying the event was not only “seamless,” but also meaningful for everyone involved.
