Why Elena volunteers!

Meet Elena Winger:Elena is part of the volunteer run Marketing and Development Committee and helps Alternatives in Motion with social media, newsletters, and more. Seeing the impact that AIM has on the community makes the work worthwhile and also led her to join our team. Although she had heard of the work AIM has done in the community before, getting into this position was pure circumstance. AIM’s mission and actions in the community align with Elena’s values which lead her to get more involved. She says she was drawn to the warm and welcoming attitude of the Executive Director, Coleen. She also noted that the feeling of appreciation and inviting nature doesn’t stop at Coleen, but extends to the committee and board members. The support from the team makes volunteering easy and worthwhile. Some advice Elena has for new volunteers is to attend as many of their events as they can. She says that “it’s a great opportunity to meet others who align with AIM’s mission and meet some of those that have benefitted from AIM’s generosity.” This offer extends to not just volunteers but to anyone wanting to learn more about how Alternatives in Motion puts their mission into action.We are thrilled to have Elena on our volunteer team and have really benefited from her sharing her marketing skills with AIM.
