I cannot believe that October 2017 will start Chicktime Indy’s 6th year serving at the Wheeler Mission Center for Women and Children! When Chicktime Indy began I rounded up my friends and family and highly encouraged (aka basically forced) them to volunteer with me. We would occasionally get a new volunteer here and there. Some would come for a while and then never be seen again and others might only come one time. It was hard and we struggled. A handful of us were leading every month and starting to feel overwhelmed. I burned out my volunteers.
Two years ago, I showed up and was the only volunteer. That day when I left I cried. I yelled at my mom and sister for not coming. So much for guilt free volunteering. Some thought it was time to give up and dismantle the Chicktime Indy Chapter. I talked to Lori and she told me I had a decision to make and to pray about it. I prayed. I made lists of pros and cons. I prayed some more. Everything was against our chapter continuing but in my heart, I knew this was not the end of Chicktime Indy. God had a plan for us.
We spent six months only serving every other month but once January hit we were back to monthly. Since then one of my dear friends has taken over emails for me (I was horrible about checking emails and still am). She and two other friends work our Facebook page with some help from me. My friends and family said they would help me with Chicktime but didn’t want to become an official co-leader. They have all continued to help me as I need it and it has made a huge difference in our chapter.
We continue to see new volunteers monthly and most keep coming back whenever they can. These fantastic volunteers are what keeps our chapter going and that is why we need you too!
We all enjoy spending time with the women at the Wheeler Mission Center for Women and Children. Each month we bring joy to the women and show them how much they are loved. We may be the only people they see each month from outside of The Center and they have come to depend on us.
We would love for you to join us on our journey to add love and joy to the lives of these children. Our volunteers are what keeps our chapter going and that is why we need you too!
