Notable Volunteers

Jolene Groen

16 years as a volunteer
Board member 2001-2003

I became involved as a board member and volunteer many years ago. I believe in providing young women who may be struggling with and opportunity to empower them with the tools to have a healthy pregnancy and provide for their children. The Teddy Bear Den provides exactly that! I love watching women who are so proud of their children come into the Den and find amazing items for their child that they have worked hard to earn.

8 years as a volunteer

Every child is a gift from God. I love being a part of a program to teach and encourage ALL moms to have a healthy pregnancy which means a healthy and normal baby. It is so much fun to watch them use their points to purchase all of the items all moms and babies want and need.
