Julie Vanderheyden, Laurie Felling and Terri Burke share a common bond, the joy of community. All three women love the friendships they have made while working at Resale Select. Terri explains, “You always volunteer with truly genuine people who want to help others in our community.”
Laurie adds, “Most of us didn’t know each other before volunteering and we feel like a family now.”
This sense of camaraderie makes volunteering fun and purposeful. Laurie had volunteered at Methodist Hospital for five years and was looking for something more uplifting. “The friendships I have made here bring me so much joy. I love helping others in our community so they feel more a part of our community.”
As members of the Merchandising Team, Julie enjoys, “making the store look good by creating vignettes, and organizing it so it’s a great shopping experience for our customers.” Laurie believes in the whole concept of “donating, displaying and giving back.” Terri is proud how they, “take things are that someone else’s throw-aways and make them look attractive to someone else.”
Even Covid didn’t stop the Merchandising Team as they, “changed gears and set up on-line sales while learning to use Facetime, Zoom and Instagram to help customers.“
Thank you for your creativity and enthusiasm!
