SHORT INTERVIEW WITH LONG-TIME VOLUNTEER RENÉE FORTIN
Foundation: Hello, Renée. How long have you supported the Foundation of Stars in a volunteer capacity?
Renée: I’ve been volunteering with the Foundation of Stars for the past 6 years.
Foundation: Why the Foundation of Stars?
Renée: My adventure began when people dear to me - who have been supporting the Foundation for years - asked me to volunteer at one of your events. I loved the experience, which made me want to continue supporting your cause.
I’m devastated whenever I see a sick child and have come to understand how research into children’s diseases is critical to saving as many young lives as possible. The Foundation of Stars is playing a role in this regard, and I’m proud to be a part of it. While helping out at various of your events, I had the opportunity to hear numerous stories of sick children and their families. I was deeply moved by their strength and courage, and they are why I’m still volunteering today.
Foundation: What is most memorable about your volunteer activities thus far?
Renée: Definitely the incredible people I’ve met during these last 6 years.
Foundation: What advice would you give to someone who’s interested in becoming a volunteer for the Foundation of Stars?
Renée: There are so many ways we can give back. Organizations like the Foundation of Stars need the help of people like us, of people who are willing to give of their time.
Thank you Renée, for your involvement and your boundless generosity.
We’re proud to count you among our most loyal volunteers!
