Giving thanks for giving back

Americorps volunteers and Sisters of Notre Dame have dedicated years (and for some, their entire lives) to the service of others. Over the years Starfire has had our own fair share of support and love from Americorps and Public Allies, and many of our staff are alumni.

This year, Tabitha and Emily are leading an effort to record the many experiences of these volunteers, and should have a beautiful collection when it’s all said and done.

Here’s a snippet from one of their interviews with an Americorps volunteer who moved away from his home to work at an elementary school in a tiny coal mining town, population: 406.

I like to collect stuff. But non-material stuff-- like friendships, stories, and wisdom from older people with smile wrinkles. This kind of stuff isn't always well organized or labeled in boxes, but it makes up who I am.
