Volunteer Spotlight: MT Fitzgerald
At the Center, much of what we do could not be done without the help of our incredible volunteers. Meet MT Fitzgerald – we are very lucky to know her.
MT was inspired to get involved by her good friend (and our Board Chair!) Steve Doherty while she pursued her Master’s in Clinical Counseling. The two combined increased her passion for volunteer work.
MT says, “My biggest takeaway from volunteering at CGC is feeling humbled and honored as I walk to my car after group. I am touched by the kid’s openness to share their pain and their strength to tackle each day. I enjoy hearing their laughter and seeing their brilliant smiles.
I have had many great moments with the children in the Tuesday night support group, including sharing ‘Captain Phillips’ jokes, making Funfetti cupcakes, and, most importantly, watching their friendships develop. I joined the family at CGC to make a difference in the children, but soon discovered that these kids have made the most beautiful difference in me. I feel I have become a kinder, more appreciative and humbled person and for that I will be forever grateful!”
Well, MT, we are grateful for YOU. Thank you for all that you do!
