#SpotlightSunday Jen Mathews

How did you become involved with the CSC?  My friend Brandy was involved and I joined her for a committee meeting.  I was in a new town and looking to be involved in something that truly mattered to me outside of the office.  CSC is something I can be passionate about and love giving my time to each year.

Why do you stay involved?  I have a 6-yr-old daughter.  I think about all the kiddos who do not have the things I work daily to give her (security, hope, fun things, adventure) and I’m grateful I can help support an organization that fills that gap.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering for the CSC?  2 birds/1 stone: Helping kiddos and throwing an amazing party!

Fun Fact about yourself.  I’m buying a house AND taking a trip to Europe in the same month.  Basically I’m insane.
