Creating Joy: Spotlight on Volunteer Charlcie Towne

This month we are spotlighting Charlcie Towne, a volunteer with The Children’s Center since 2017. Charlcie is a committed volunteer who we can always rely on. Since 2017, Charlcie has been a member of the Fundraising Committee where she always goes above and beyond taking on many tasks that ensure a wonderful event experience for all that attend. She also volunteers with the Annual Appeal mailing and the Pinwheel Walk each year taking on tasks behind the scenes and at our events. We are so grateful to have Charlcie on our team!
