Kiawah Cares benefits from so many committed volunteers, all property owners who are dedicated to improving the circumstances of our island neighbors. View a list of Kiawah Cares’ dedicated volunteers here.
Each year, Kiawah Cares recognizes a volunteer who has contributed greatly to the community. Thank you and congratulations to 2017’s Volunteer of the Year, Lisa DiGeronimo!
A former teacher, Lisa’s volunteerism illustrates her lifelong commitment to education. Since 2013, Lisa has worked with Reading Partners, Lunch Buddies and Angel Oak Elementary through Kiawah Cares. Read Reading Partners’ statement on Lisa selfless work with the program.
Lisa says, “I was naturally attracted to the school programs because of my background and love for children. I knew as a teacher how important and valuable volunteers are in our schools. I love seeing my students progress and be successful readers but I also just enjoy listening to them, hearing about their day or helping with a problem and having them know that I am someone that they can depend on.”
In honor of Lisa’s commitment, Kiawah Cares will make a donation in her name to Angel Oak Elementary School.
