Volunteer of the Month

Our volunteer of the month, Charmaine Edwards, loves to work with children. She finds CCM to be a very comfortable environment to work in and appreciates the benefits to its visitors. She’s gotten to know some of the regular visitors since starting here a year ago. She enjoys helping them to do art projects and other activities. Other volunteers agree Charmaine loves to help everyone and is a fantastic volunteer. Says Reke Forrester, another volunteer, “we try to follow in her tracks!”
