Catie Cole, Volunteer Chair, Atlanta Affiliate

Home Get Involved Volunteer Volunteer Appreciation Month Catie Cole, Volunteer Chair, Atlanta Affiliate

Catie-ColeCatie has been a dedicated volunteer for seven years and has remained committed through thick and thin. She was encouraged to take on the newly added Volunteer Chair leadership position in her local affiliate in 2011. Her knowledge and willingness to go out of her way to connect with others in her affiliate and make them feel welcome makes her a perfect fit for her leadership role. She volunteers in honor of her sister, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer and continues to fight so that others don’t have to face losing their loved ones to this disease

“Volunteering enriches my life because I am still doing something for my sister. The loss of a sister or any loved one is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I have become a more compassionate person and am accomplishing things I would never have done before. I have stepped outside the box and my comfort zone. I am pushing myself to do more to fight this disease.”

“With this organization, we’re not JUST volunteers. We are people with a real purpose who are on a mission like no other.”
