“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” - Oscar Wilde
In honor of National Volunteer Week from April 10th-16th, Cabarrus Partnership for Children (CPC) would like to recognize these volunteers for their amazing work with our organization and in the community.
Tilly Fredette has volunteered with CPC at different capacities over the last 8 years. While she currently teaches K-5 English as a Second Language (ESL) for Cabarrus County Schools, Tilly volunteers her time helping our organization with applications, screenings, family events, and various other programs.
Tilly says her passion is “helping children reach their learning goals, building trust with their families, helping families locate resources, and to support families any way I possibly can.” Her passion shows through all of the work she has done to help families and children in Cabarrus County. Her motto is: “What I do is not who I am, who I am is what I do.” – Joyce Meyer
Elizabeth Albright, Family Programs Coordinator at CPC, shared that Tilly “is a fantastic person who is always helping and giving of her free time.” Thank you Tilly for all you have done for Cabarrus Partnership for Children!
For the last two years, Cabarrus Partnership for Children has had the pleasure of working with Paula Yost. Paula is an attorney at the Country Law Shack in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina who has also devoted her time to helping our organization as well as many others in the community.
Paula serves as the chair of the Cabarrus County Child Protection Team. As the chair, she leads a committee which works to protect children in Cabarrus County by creating programs to be implemented in our community.
The Executive Director of CPC, Ann Benfield, has worked very closely with her and says that “Paula’s passion for children’s safety is contagious. She is truly a child advocate!” We are so thankful for her service and advocacy in the Cabarrus County community.
Volunteers are essential to our success and play a vital role within our organization and the partners we work with. We are honored to have so many volunteers who advocate for Cabarrus County’s youngest children and help our organization and its partners thrive.
