Dedicated. Kind. Caring. Generous. Cathy Roth embodies the spirit of the holiday season at Interfaith Outreach. Cathy has been a community supporter of Interfaith Outreach for many years, volunteering with the food shelf, Resale Select, Holiday Gift Program and The Sleep Out. She loved working with these programs but was seeking a deeper relationship with the organization, wanting to work directly with staff and utilize her planning and leadership skills. Cathy graciously accepted the position of volunteer chairperson of the Interfaith Outreach Holiday Gift Program.
From planning through implementation, Cathy’s deep dedication is evident in every aspect of the Holiday Gift Program. She logs in countless hours from July to January to make this program a huge success. She works directly with our Community Engagement staff to lead volunteer groups through the process of registering families. Last year 2,647 individuals had a happier holiday because of our Holiday Gift Program, and Cathy was key to that success.
Cathy’s favorite part of volunteering at Interfaith Outreach is having a direct impact on people. From talking to a young girl who brought in a ziplock bag filled with change to interacting with volunteers and staff, Cathy’s kindness and caring is felt by many.
Thank you, Cathy, for your hard work and for inspiring us!
