Jill and Abbie Matson
The Fur Kids Foundation board of directors want to give a huge shout out to Jill and Abbie Matson as the October 2016 Volunteers of the Month!
Jill and Abbie joined the pack in September after attending their second Pet-A-Palooza. They were so impressed with the event, and their dog had a paw-some time, that they decided to become volunteers! Jill also knows Tiffany, and commented on the fact that everyone they spoke with from FKF was very friendly and clearly loved what we do, so they wanted to be a part of that as well!
When Jill completed the volunteer application, she mentioned that she wanted to help us get the word out about FKF, as well as help with events and fundraisers and even recruit new volunteers. This dynamic duo hit the streets hard for us in late October to help hang up posters for Ladies Night Out. There were a handful of locations still open to hang flyers, but this pair went above and beyond and hung posters in 20 different locations, that weren’t on our list! So, now we have 20 more locations that we can hang posters, which means more people may see information about our events.
Jill and Abbie also volunteered to work Ladies Night Out, but Abbie came down with a bug and wasn’t able to make it. Jill worked the food station and helped us clean up afterwards.
Ladies, thank you for taking the initiative to find additional locations to hang posters at, and for helping us with Ladies Night Out. We greatly appreciate your hard work in such a short time. We are grateful that you joined our pack.
We’re always posting how pawsome our volunteers are, and we sincerely mean it. If you have seen a volunteer go above and beyond, please contact us!
