Volunteer of the Quarter

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 someone who has gone above and beyond their call of duty as our highlighted volunteer of the quarter. 

Congratulations to our Purple Community volunteer of the quarter — Xi Chen!

Dr. Xi Chen is a research scientist in the Moore Lab here at Van Andel Institute, and a consistent volunteer at VAI events since 2016. She has lent a hand at many of our fall events, including Pure Barre on the Blue Bridge, Couture for a Cure and Hope on the Hill. We are so appreciative of her willingness to get involved and the unique perspective she brings to every volunteer opportunity as an Institute scientist.
