Volunteer of the Month
For the month of May, we honor Nicole Nanchy, who
just graduated with a B.A. in Human Services. She has been
very active in volunteerism through counseling homeless women
with the sexual assault crisis counseling center and serving
turkey dinners to the needy. Nicole finds her inspiration
to volunteer with women from the oppression they faced in
"I feel that I have the spirit to give women the passion
to love life," she said.
Nicole began volunteering with women twelve years ago at
the Chino Women's Prison. She shared with me her belief that
"all humans have the right to food, shelter, safety,
and relationships." She added "I can give people
relationships." Nicole's biggest impact on the community,
however, came through the founding of Marine Moms Together.
She founded the program a year ago after her 19-year-old son
Brandon was sent overseas in January. She saw that there was
no support system for Marine moms in her community- so she
Nicole Nanchy has worked with women for several years now
and her impact on the community has been immeasurable. One
of her greatest accomplishments has been the founding of Marine
Moms Together where her dedication to providing women an emotional
support system along with a safe environment for the mothers
of soldiers to share their experiences is an inspiration to
Recognizing Volunteers' Efforts
Thousands of our students and faculty members have contributed
their time to volunteer and community service projects over
the course of the campaign thus far, but there are some whose
efforts can be seen as exemplary. Of the many goals set forth
by the Titans 100K Hours of Service campaign, one of
the most important ones is that of recognition. Each month
we plan to celebrate the accomplishments of one of the many
contributors to the Titans 100K Hours of Service campaign.
If you are involved in your community, we want to recognize
you for the good work you do. Document your service hours
by completing a card and place it in one of the various drop
boxes located at key campus locations. If it's more convenient
to log hours online, go to www.fullerton.edu/100k/loghours.htm.
All CSUF students, faculty, and staff have the opportunity
to participate in showing our community that we are indeed
changing the world!
