“Volunteering is a such a great way to get involved with the community and be a part of making things better for everyone. My first volunteer ‘job’ was a Candy Stripe Volunteer in a local hospital and it was an eye-opener to how much little things really can help! There is a satisfaction in volunteering that money cannot replace.”

“It has always been an honor and a privilege working with volunteers in the community. Serving on the board gives me the opportunity to give back and reach out to others on how important volunteer work is and how it benefits others in the community.”

 

Genae Denver | Secretary

“The Flint Hills Volunteer Center does a great job of connecting our community people that have a heart of service with organizations that need their goodness. As a part of the board, I love the fact that I can represent those volunteers who selflessly give of themselves, support the organization with fundraising events, and understand more fully the nature of how we care for one another. Volunteering = Caring and Serving!”

 

Matt Walters | Treasurer

“Where would our community be? Where would any community be? If it weren’t for volunteers, where we call home would look nothing like it does today. Giving back to my community has always been important in my life and that’s why I’m involved with the Flint Hills Volunteer Center. The more people, who can and will get involved, will only make Manhattan and the surrounding area a better place to call home!”

 

Gary Aufdemberge

“Although I have gotten to know the Manhattan community since moving to the area several years ago, I really hadn’t become involved. When I was asked to be on the board, I felt it was a great opportunity to dig deeper into the community and give back. I am excited to be part of an organization that touches so many different parts of Manhattan.”

“Volunteerism has always been my passion since my time with the YMCA in North Carolina. It is an important function within communities and allows community members to get more connected and involved. I look forward to helping expand that culture and mission of volunteerism that the FHVC embodies.”
