This month, we want to spotlight Kay Cummings, one of our most committed volunteers and a woman who epitomizes the spirit of philanthropy. Earlier this month, Kay graciously hosted a fantastic Wish List Party for FwP at her home. There was great music, food, and shopping, and the event yielded bins of donated school supplies, a number of filled backpacks, and significant funds to help remove barriers to education for children experiencing homelessness.
However, this party is just the tip of the iceberg with regards to Kay's generosity and commitment for the causes in which she believes. Kay threw an outstanding fundraising party last year that benefited Faces without Places and other organizations, and she has donated an incredible number of in-kind donations to help children experiencing homelessness. Moreover, earlier this year, Kay made an incredible run for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Woman of the Year, raising tens of thousands of dollars through over a dozen fun events in Cincinnati and Florida.
We believe Kay is a prime example of how volunteers can devote their time and energy to have fun while making an enormous impact on charities and important causes. We cannot thank Kay enough for her continued support!
