Volunteers of the Month

Our May Volunteer of the Month is Joy Buzzell! Joy lives in New Hampshire and volunteers with our Development team. Joy has spent countless hours working on the planning and execution of our New Hampshire fundraising events, including our Candlelight Masquerade Gala and our Swing 4 Epilepsy golf tournament.

Our New Hampshire Field Service Manager, Kristen Krauss, says “Joy Buzzell is a pillar of strength and a force of love with an incredibly sparkly personality. I feel honored to have met Joy and to call her a friend.”

Our Fundraising Assistant/Development Associate Rachel Buckley enjoyed working with Joy on our most recent Candlelight Masquerade Gala. Rachel remarked “Joy went above and beyond to make sure everything for the New Hampshire gala was perfect. We are so lucky to have such a fun, selfless volunteer like her!”

Joy, we’re so appreciative for all you’ve done for our foundation and the clients we serve. Thank you!
