I first heard about the Adoption Network Cleveland when I moved to Cleveland for a job. I was looking for ways to get involved in the community and working with the Adoption Network Cleveland really stood out to me. It was their mission statement that really resonated with me and why I wanted to volunteer for them. I truly believe in their mission to “provide a source of healing for those in need,” specifically those impacted by adoption and foster care.
I started by baking for their events on a monthly basis which was a perfect mix for me of doing something I loved for the greater good. As I became more involved, I helped out at their Creating Future’s Benefit. Working with the different volunteers here to help keep the event running smoothly was very impactful to me. You could tell that all of the volunteers and workers of ANC were really passionate about the organization which helped make for a successful and fun event. Lastly, because I love working with this organization so much, I nominated the idea of having my company’s annual charity golf outing raise money for them. The event was a success and I couldn’t have been happier to help support something that would help out those impacted by adoption and foster care.
Overall, my experience with Adoption Network Cleveland has been fantastic and I would recommend anyone who has free time to reach out and see how you can help!
