CTEH: Helping Hands Part III

When asked why she likes to volunteer, Miki Rieth of our New Orleans office said, “There is such a rewarding feeling when you see a smile on someone’s face and know that you helped make a difference in that person’s life.”

As a long-time volunteer with the Bayou Interfaith Shared Community Organizing (BISCO), Miki is no stranger to making a positive difference in her community. When local families lost their homes to a fire, Miki—along with her BISCO team members—stepped up to provide clothing, furniture, food and other essential supplies. At a local youth meeting, she helped make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to distribute to the homeless in New Orleans. And when her friend’s family whose husband was suffering from kidney failure was struggling financially, Miki helped with an online auction to help pay their house note for a few months.

Miki said she’s been raised to pay it forward. What motivates you to volunteer? Share your story with us and visit volunteermatch.org to find your opportunity today.
