Purple Community Angel

We appreciate all of our volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to Purple Community — we couldn’t do it without you! Each quarter the Purple Community Team highlights a volunteer who has gone above and beyond their call of duty as our quarterly Purple Community Angel. 

Congratulations to our Purple Community Angel of the quarter — Pat Symanski!

We are lucky to have Pat Symanski as one of our volunteers for over a year and a half now! Pat is an invaluable volunteer who supports Purple Community’s event inventory management each week. Along with 2 other volunteers, Pat works to maintain organization of all our merchandise and proactively prepare for the many events that come to fruition each month. With over 120 events annually, we truly could not have the fundraising success we do without our volunteers behind the scenes.

Aside from volunteering, Pat is a skilled craftswomen in basket weaving! She attends many shows throughout the year as a vendor and sells her beautiful work – she even participated in our VAI internal craft show this year.

Thank you for your continuous involvement and support Pat!
