New Volunteer Spotlight: Abby

Abby is a new volunteer at Interchange and new to Milwaukee. Originally from Colorado and going to school in Michigan, Abby is here in Milwaukee for the summer, while she works as an intern with Northwestern Mutual.

“I knew I really liked helping out those in need,” Abby said, about what motivated her to volunteer.

“I found out about Interchange after searching on the internet. This came up, and it seemed like a really great place,” she said.

“It seems like Interchange has got its operations down to a science. Everything flows really well. People seem to really value what you do here, and it seems like Interchange has a really holistic approach to serving people,” Abby said.

When asked what advice she’d give new volunteers or those interested in coming to Interchange for the first time, Abby responded, “There’s always a place where you can start helping out—you won’t be bored. Everyone is really lovely here.”

Thanks for volunteering with us this summer, Abby!
