Volunteer of the Month July 2015
Congratulations to Jennifer Thorburn our Volunteer of the Month for July!
You will find Jennifer Thorburn at the Hacienda de Feliz Community Room, Monday through Wednesday, helping the children services staff, Katie and Jen, and guiding the campers through all the fun adventures of Many Mansions’ Camp Many Mansions! Jennifer has helped out at Camp and been volunteering with the Homework Tutoring Club for past 2 years. Jennifer loves working with children, and she loves the warm and fun environment Many Mansions’ provides for them!
Jennifer just graduated from Westlake High School and will be attending UCLA in the Fall. She moved to Thousand Oaks as she was entering middle school. Her dad works at Anthem and her mom is training a guide dog. Jennifer loves to run, hike, read, and listen to music! She also enjoys baking, but is still honing her skills with this hobby.
On the first day of Summer Camp this year, as the kids just arrived, several of them ran up and gave her a big hug! That says it all right there – they love her as much as she loves them! She is a gem to the program!
Jennifer’s friends know how important volunteering at Many Mansions is to her. She shares all her stories with them. She recommends volunteering at Many Mansions to anyone who is thinking about helping out. Her experience has been so delightful that she hopes she will be back for many summers to come!
