Arlington Charities is thrilled to welcome Georgia as our new Volunteer Coordinator.
Georgia's bubbly personality and can-do attitude have already won over both new and longtime volunteers. The nonprofit world is Georgia’s happy place, and she has loved working at various organizations for the past ten years. Previously, she has worked as a dance instructor and educator at Alliance For Children. However, she found her calling in volunteer recruitment for Meals on Wheels Tarrant County and the Salvation Army.
Creating a volunteer family
As the Volunteer Coordinator, Georgia’s job is to coordinate and schedule current volunteers as well as recruit new ones to join our team. She hopes to create a tight knit volunteer family with the singular goal of feeding Arlington. “It’s a great sign that we have so many volunteers that have been here such a long time,” asserted Georgia. “We want to make sure that they feel appreciated with a wider range of volunteer activities.” Georgia also hopes to create a more diverse group of volunteers in terms of age, gender, and ethnicity. “There doesn’t have to be one mold,” she stresses. “For example, schoolchildren love to make cards!”
Outside of Arlington Charities, Georgia is a mother of a two year old and runs a photography business with her husband of six years. She loves to eat food, play piano, and sing.
