Volunteer Spotlight – Mina Zomorod
Meet Mina Zomorod one of our amazing Camp to You volunteers. According to Camp Korey staff, Mina is “…always full of imagination, willing to meet CTY campers ‘where they are’ and highly devoted.” Mina started volunteering with CTY almost eight months ago and spends most of her volunteer time at the Ronald McDonald House supporting children and families by managing fun and engaging activities, games and crafts. Mina admits that she originally signed up to volunteer because playing games with kids for hours sounded fun and exciting. Since then she has discovered how rewarding and precious each volunteer experience with Camp Korey. Mina has formed amazing bonds and relationships with the children and the families that she meets and leaves each session with a full heart, excited for her next volunteer opportunity.
“It feels like they’re given a chance to erase all their worries for a while and just embrace their childhood. Camp to You is a life-changing program that I am so honored to be a part of,” states Mina.
Camp to You (CTY) brings all the magic and adventure of camp to children in a variety of healthcare settings in Seattle, Tacoma and Portland. Along with several Camp Korey staff members, CTY is supported by dedicated volunteers who help facilitate programs that offer unique, creative and developmentally appropriate activities to restore joy, community and self-esteem.
