Volunteer of the Week

Brenda Green
Welcome Baby Resource Center,
Durham County Cooperative Extension Service

Brenda serves as a volunteer childcare helper for the Welcome Baby Family Resource Center. In this role, she meets and greets parents, children, and infants once a month during Giving Closet. Her service makes it possible for families to receive free quality childcare as they both obtain clothing, diapers and other needed items. 

With her kind and caring demeanor, Brenda's presence ensures a smooth transition for the children in her care. Her willingness to watch the children maybe small, but without her many of the parents would not be able to receive services.

Thank you, Brenda Green for being a staunch advocate for Welcome Baby by volunteering and by sharing its message to the community.
