July Volunteers of the Month

The summertime is a great way to get involved with HALO and HALO Programs. Our volunteers of the month for July share something in common: a passion to dive right in!

HALO partnered with Youth Volunteer Corps Kansas City for a week, where young volunteers spent time learning about HALO while doing meaningful (and fun) projects to support HALO staff, but more importantly, HALO youth!

YVC volunteers and team leaders were quick learners and advocates for the 700+ HALO youth we serve within the Kansas City Learning Center. Their week started with experiencing the variety of therapeutic art programs, providing wholesome and creative examples to assist HALO youth during workshops. Throughout the next few days, YVC volunteers embodied the mission of HALO, providing the foundation of a family for every child that comes through the Learning Center doors. They packed PowerPacks with donated essential items for HALO youth to grab at their next workshop. They cleaned, sanitized, and organized the Learning Office and HALO Headquarters. They donated to their Change that Counts boxes raising enough to provide 223 meals to kids all over the world!

Thank you, YVC Kansas City, for your partnership and for showing the greater Kansas City area how powerful young people are in making the world a better place.

Our Jefferson City Volunteer of the Month also dove in heart first. Rita Kuttenkuler joined HALO as a volunteer this month and has already started showing HALO youth that love heals. Rita comes with a mother's touch. She gives HALO kids love and attention and even gets on the playground set with them! Rita has a keen niche for developing children of all ages.

At HALO, we appreciate her willingness to show up and show out by simply being herself. Rita is a standup volunteer, and we are so excited to see the impact she'll make on future HALO kids in the Jefferson City Learning Center!

It's your turn to dive in with your skillset and impact one HALO kid's life today!
