Hi. I'm Kathy and I've been a volunteer for BarnRaisers for the past five years. My heart for serving children falls right in line with the mission of BarnRaisers and my love for serving others - both locally and globally - is the cornerstone of our family.
My husband Jeff and I live in Bloomington, Ind. We've been married for 35 years and have two grown children Jessica (Scotty) and Ryan (Nichol). We are also the proud “Honey” and “Poppy” to our four amazing grandkids. Jeff and I are blessed to be semi-retired, able to travel and spend several months in Florida each year.
BarnRaisers is a fantastic group of volunteers that I'm humbled to serve with. We come together with excitement and determination to raise funds that better the lives of children, and our trips to serve in countries such as Haiti, Guatemala, India and Costa Rica have enriched my life abundantly.
Through the generosity of donors, we are able to enrich the lives of children through education, housing, clothing and much more. However, there is nothing more touching then to love and to be loved by the children we meet along the way.
One of the things we do annually is our Bingo Night. It’s a lot of hard work and dedication, but it is so much fun to experience 350 like-minded people coming together to raise funds for the next group of children we will support. I tell folks, "come be a BarnRaiser for a night. you won’t regret it." By the way, our next Bingo Night is set for March 13th. Hope to see you there.
