Name: Corinne Peers
Why do you volunteer?
I enjoy seeing the creativity come out in young girls who previously thought they had none.
What do you do when you are not volunteering?
Work for Dees Crafts, paint, and create jewelry.
Why do you choose to donate your time to Maryhurst?
Because I feel it is important to encourage the exploration of potential.
Can you share an experience with Maryhurst that made you realize you were making a difference?
I received a drawing from a young girl who had already decided that art wasn’t her “thing”. That she thought to share it with me spoke volumes.
What advice would you give someone who is on the fence about volunteering?
There is no greater joy than helping someone realize their potential.
