At Classroom Central, we have the most amazing volunteer support system. Since we just have a staff of eleven, we rely on our volunteers to help us achieve our mission. Our volunteer spotlights are a way of showcasing those individuals and groups. This month, we spotlight Jack Hill.
Length of time as a volunteer:
Since early 2009
Why you volunteer at Classroom Central:
Since my retirement, I have enjoyed volunteering at numerous organizations and events. Classroom Central is one of my favorite locations as it is an effective and efficient organization providing an essential community service. My interaction with Classroom Central employees and volunteers is pleasant and fun. Talking with the teachers and school administrators is both interesting and rewarding as it confirms the necessity of Classroom Central's mission.
What school supply excites you the most to see come through the doors?
While all school supplies are important, I think books & magazines interest me the most. Both are powerful tools that can enlighten and entertain students. Both were important to me as a young student and continue to be as a somewhat older reader.
