FEBRUARY 2013 VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHTS:  JENNY KERN AND JEFFERSON CACERES
Each month Bloomfield College recognizes students for their exceptional leadership and dedication to volunteering. This month we asked Jenny Kern and Jefferson Caceres - 

Why do you volunteer? What is your most memorable moment volunteering?
 

Jenny Kern (pictured above)
"I want to show people that there are others willing to help even if it’s just giving a smile or having a listening ear. Volunteering is important because it opens your eyes to many situations. It makes me appreciate the littlest things and opportunities that I am given. My most significant volunteer experience at Bloomfield College was Elijah’s Promise Soup Kitchen. I  met some amazing people that were thankful and it made me feel good seeing people smile when I handed them a hot plate of food. I have learned that money isn’t everything. The feeling of bringing happiness and being able to help others is more important than all the money in the world.  I would recommend other students to volunteer because it feels good to help others, it’s actually fun, and you will meet some amazing people that will appreciate your help."


Jefferson Caceres
"Volunteering is important because it gives you an opportunity to learn about yourself while helping others. I believe that volunteering is a domino effect where if one person sees you doing a good thing then they would follow your example and also do a good thing. My most memorable volunteer experience at Bloomfield College was when students and staff went to volunteer in South Jersey to help Hurricane Sandy victims.We cleaned up homes and helped those who could not do it by themselves. I chose this volunteer experience because I enjoyed the tasks, it made me feel good and I wanted to continue helping. I learned that others also want to help out and extend their hand to people who actually need it. I would recommend other students to volunteer because it is always a life changing experience."
