Volunteer PRAISES!

Our volunteer PRAISES go out to a heart filled young woman by the name of Carol Van Hulle. Our amazing and devoted volunteer is from the beautiful land of Minnesota. She is a hard working Graduate student at the University of Colorado studying Behavioral Genetics. While reading the Rocky Mountain News during Christmas, Carol read an article on homeless children written by the Denver Executive Director of StandUp for Kids. After getting in touch with StandUp, she had the opportunity to meet Rick Koca, the founder. In July, Carol became the volunteer contact for Stand Up for Kids, Boulder. Carol is a key member of the Boulder program and coordinates and attends all planning meetings, encourages others, helps with program organization, and always brings a loving attitude. THANKS CAROL!!
