Volunteer Spotlight: Helene Feldstein 

During National Volunteer Appreciation Month, we’re shining a spotlight on some of our incredible volunteers. Their dedication and support have brought joy and comfort to so many children through their service with Pajama Program.  

Since joining us in April 2019, Helene Feldstein has been a ray of sunshine in our volunteer community, brightening the lives of children with her infectious smile and warm heart. When asked about her journey with Pajama Program, Helene’s enthusiasm shines through.  

“I love seeing the kids,” Helene shares with a smile. “Their faces light up when they receive their new pajamas and books. It’s heartwarming.”  

Helene stumbled upon Pajama Program during a casual dinner conversation with friends, where one mentioned her volunteer work with our organization. Intrigued by the idea, Helene wasted no time in signing up, eager to make a difference in the lives of children in need.  

“It sounded fabulous,” Helene recalls. “So, I signed up that night. I’ve been coming in two or three times a week ever since.”  

Helene’s commitment to our cause stems from her deep-rooted belief in the power of positive mentorship and the importance of nurturing children’s confidence and literacy skills.  

“I’ve always been interested in working with children,” she explains. “I think they need mentors and positive examples. I love feeling like I can offer them something positive, something that might boost their confidence or help them learn how to read.”  

Helene’s dedication embodies the spirit of volunteerism, reminding us all of the profound impact that individuals can have when they come together for a common purpose. 

As we express our heartfelt appreciation to Helene and all our volunteers during National Volunteer Appreciation Month, we invite others to join us in spreading warmth and happiness to children in need, one pajama at a time.
