Volunteer of the Month: Pam Madden

Pam has been volunteering her time with Rebuilding Together Seattle for the last few years, and joined the RTS Development Committee last year, where she has been a huge asset to RTS.  Most recently, Pam spearheaded the RTS Hearts Rebuilding Homes Valentine's campaign, which raised nearly $2,500!!

1. Why did you choose to get involved with RTS? How long have you been volunteering with RTS?

I joined the development committee in Aug 2010. But my first volunteer opportunity was about 3 or 4 years ago with Wachovia Bellevue office.

2. What do you enjoy the most about working with our organization?

From a volunteer perspective I will never forget the homeowner's face after a day of labor on her home. Seeing her gratitude was worth everything.

As a volunteer on development I love the enthusiasm and creativity of the committee. Everyone is supportive and all are working toward common goals.

3. What do your colleagues or other volunteers say about RTS? Why do they want to volunteer their time?

Most are extremely supportive and aware of the organization. There are still many who are unaware and I am always excited to talk about the value of time and monetary donations.

4. What about RTS’ mission are you most drawn to?

I suppose it's how I perceive the concept of RTS: a little goes a long way to provide safety and warmth of homeowners in need. A home is so often a reflection of a homeowner. Restoring the utility of a home brings renewal to the particular project and is also a renewal in spirit to the homeowner.

Thank you for your dedication to
Rebuilding Together Seattle, Pam!!
