As a smaller nonprofit organization, we absolutely depend on the time and effort of our board members and our volunteers. The run alone will have over 1,000 Superhero runners. We need volunteers prior to the day of the run, at the run, and even on the run’s course. And that’s just for one event! Without the help of their volunteers, ASW’s staff would find it challenging to hold and execute their events.
ASW’s Ambassador Volunteers also play a pivotal role for the foundation. The ambassadors take on a more hands-on approach. We have a smaller group of volunteers who have really made an incredible impact on our organization. Becky Levi, ASW’s key Sparkles of Joy volunteer, helps us prepare monthly gifts, assists with gift delivery, and runs our monthly bingo game. Our ambassadors go through an extensive background check and consists of people we know can act as trusted faces for A Special Wish Foundation. People like Becky make a huge and positive impact on our daily work lives within a normal business day.
