June Volunteers of the Month

HALO started with a group of people who saw a need and took action. Almost 20 years later, we continue to have volunteers who step up for kids who need it the most. Thanks to our June Volunteers of the Month, HALO is providing the foundation of a family for children in our communities, helping one more child spend one less day alone.
Olivia Pikul is our Kansas City HALO Volunteer of the Month for June after dedicating her Miss Kansas Volunteer campaign to advocating for homeless and at-risk youth in the greater Kansas City area. During her time as Miss Kansas Volunteer, she organized a huge PowerPack donation drive for the Kansas City HALO Learning Center! From January to June, Olivia hosted in-person events, shared Amazon Wish Lists, and posted on her social media platforms to bring the community together to provide necessary items to children who need them the most. Her drive raised over 2000 wet wipes, 300 diapers, 200 toothbrushes, 40 toothpastes, and more, including suitcases, sleeping bags, feminine products, hair care products, and snacks! Olivia has been a longtime HALO Volunteer and continues to make a difference in the lives of the 700+ kids HALO supports in the Learning Center annually. Thank you, Olivia, for being the best advocate and providing the foundation of a family for HALO children.
Our Jefferson City Volunteer of the Month is Abby Claypool. Abby has been spending time throughout her summer working with HALO. She comes ready to clean and organize, spending hours deep cleaning rooms in the HALO Girls Home so they are prepared for a new youth to move in. Abby is willing to jump in and help wherever possible. She is also finding new ways to get involved at HALO by teaching a life skill during Family Nights in the Girls Home. Thank you, Abby, for having the best attitude and always being ready to make a difference.
