Karen T.

Karen jumped right in after joining our team and claimed a regular trip—the Wednesday trip from Novato Nugget Markets to Novato Youth Center. It makes everything so much simpler for us and our partners when our volunteers “own” regular trips. It creates consistency, reliability….and our donors and recipients love that familiar face! We celebrate you this week, Karen!
