As a youngster, Rachel discovered the joy that came from giving back to her community. She grew up volunteering in a women’s shelter, where her mother worked. It had a lasting impact on her life.
Today, Rachel continues to lift women up in her community through her work at Interval House, and as a monthly donor.
“It’s so important to support women and children recovering from the cycle of abuse,” she says. “I think it’s a really positive thing for the whole community. Monthly giving is such a manageable way to support community organizations. And I know it gives the organization a predictable revenue stream. I think that’s good peace of mind.
“Seeing the impact it makes, and seeing how women really do have their lives completely changed, is really amazing. Survivors of abuse deserve to have a fairy-tale ending, even if their marriage or partnership didn’t turn out the way they had hoped,” she explains. “And being part of that journey for women for years to come is something I want to do in my own small way.”
With her monthly gifts, Rachel is a sustaining force for the frontline programs that empower women and help them build new lives for themselves and their children.
