Stephanie Poppe, ServeWyoming

Stephanie Poppe, an AmeriCorps*VISTA volunteer for ServeWyoming, writes, "Serving in the community of Sheridan as a ServeWyoming VISTA Volunteer has been a wonderful experience. I have been able to meet and work with vital organizations that serve our community. As a result, I have seen first hand the connections we have been able to facilitate through our programming and collaboration with other agencies which have continued to successfully bridge the communication gap among nonprofits in Sheridan. During a recent event, I had the opportunity to connect the volunteer base at Fort Mackenzie High School with local flood relief agencies. Through this partnership, the flood relief agencies were able to increase the number of volunteers who were willing and able to give their time and generous donations of goods to flood victims." Great moments of community members coming together in service like the one described in Stephanie's story is one of many great stories happening throughout the Cowboy State. ServeWyoming continues to strive to promote the work ethic of volunteerism and service throughout the state with the help of it's staff, VISTA volunteers, and board members.
