VSD’s January Superhero – JoJean Jones

January 21, 2011

Words from Volunteer San Diego about our January Superhero

Volunteer San Diego would like to recognize JoJean Jones for her outstanding work as VSD’s Front Desk Team Member. JoJean has been volunteering in our office for nine months contributing more than 75 hours.

Every Tuesday afternoon, JoJean sits at our front desk station and warmly greets staff and visitors; enters youth waiver information in our database so youth can start using our website; answers our main phone line directing callers to the appropriate staff member or our website; and helps us return the many phone calls on our Volunteer Hotline. On the week of January 3, JoJean was able to return approximately 20 phone call in less than two hours.

Thanks to the wonderful help and dedication of JoJean, interested volunteers are getting the information they need to be matched to community organizations in need.

Words from JoJean our January Superhero

For anyone who is considering volunteer service but is not sure where to start, I recommend volunteering as a VSD Front Desk Team Member. By starting here, you can learn about the organization, how to utilize the web site, and of the many volunteer opportunities that are available through VSD and partner organizations in San Diego County. Since I am recently retired, I like having the opportunity to continue using my computer skills. While helping out answering phone calls and entering computer data, I am learning every week from the staff members who are a friendly, professional group of people. Come and join us.
