2016 Volunteer of the Year: jan wessell

Jan Wessell volunteers 1-2 times per week at the Help Hub of the Harrelson Center doing database entry. Jan is a retired educator and is a member of First Presbyterian, one of the founders of the Help Hub. 


She says volunteering at the Help Hub “is very rewarding” and says she does it because she “sees such a need - not just to hand out money but to help people find their way”. Jan also stated, “I believe education is the key to be able to deal with circumstances that come your way. Education is key to learning about organizations at the Harrelson Center.

It is the key to getting a job to help you out of the situation you have created”. Thank you, Jan, for your hard work and dedication! We love our volunteers!
