Lauren Costello, Ridgefield resident and a rising junior at the University of Richmond, has a passion for volunteering and loves to work with organizations that support children. Nominated by Kids Helping Kids, she is spending her summer break volunteering 5 days a week as their Social Media Manager and we are thrilled to honor Lauren as our July Volunteer of the Month.
Since May, Lauren has been managing the Kids Helping Kids social media pages and telling their story through photos and video. She is also responsible for updating the website and researching and writing grants to help secure funding for future service projects. Lauren has attended all of the summer KHK projects and engages completely with guests. The children feel comfortable around her patient and kind demeanor. “She’s always willing to wear many hats, she is personable, creative, organized and has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic. We are so grateful for Lauren’s time and many talents,” shared Jen Bentley, Kids Helping Kids Program Director.
