Volunteer of the Month
Alexis came to OC United as a senior looking to graduate from Biola with a Marketing degree. She came as a Love Fullerton Intern and also worked with our Marketing and Communications to complete her senior Marketing project.
What drew us in was her compassionate heart for those in our communities who are struggling as well as her experience working in under-resourced communities. She did an excellent job with our social media posts and also was working on organizing and planning for some community projects specifically working with a few of our cities mobile home parks.
Alexis is so friendly, easy going and cooperative it was a pleasure to work with her even though when Covid-19 hit in mid-March, our event was postponed and we had to pivot and essentially direct all our Love Fullerton efforts to serve our local community and help it to respond to needs based on the pandemic.
Alexis jumped into online programming with our Neighborhoods team from the very start of COVID-19. For 30 minutes, 5 days a week, for the past 10 weeks, Alexis has shared a little of her passion with kids by teaching them dance, even after her official internship had ended. From freeze dance to viral TikTok dances, Alexis shows up each day looking to give all of herself to the kids in front of her screen.
There is a freedom that the kids find when Alexis logs on to our Zoom meeting each day, as her work with our kids has slowly built a new level of confidence in each of them. Alexis brings joy, a listening ear, and a pure fun in the moments she spends with our kids. Their quarantine was made better because of her care for them.
Thank you Alexis for being a part of OC United, we know you will be an irreplaceable part of whatever company or organization is lucky enough to have you.
