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 — Rachel Decker!

Aside from volunteering with Purple Community, Rachel keeps busy by spending time with her husband and daughter, visiting the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market multiple times a week, volunteering at Circle Theater, and fulfilling her creative drive with sewing, painting and repurposing furniture.

“Too many family members and friends have battled or are battling some of the devastating diseases that are benefiting from VAI’s research efforts. I believe 100% in the organization, love that it’s LOCAL and bringing in worldwide talent,” Rachel said.

Thanks for your continued support over the years Rachel, we are lucky to have you!
