Dan is a "power commuter" who works in northern Virginia Monday-Thursday and spends Friday-Sunday at home in Pennsylvania with his family. Since he can't be with his family during the week, Dan decided to spend his evenings volunteering instead of staying late at the office. He came to NVFS at the encouragement of Jean Edelman, co-founder of Edelman Financial Services where Dan works and a former NVFS board member. After doing some research, he was so impressed with our agency that he immediately began volunteering.
When asked about his favorite part of volunteering, Dan adamantly says, "the people." He continues, "I am inspired regularly by learning the journeys and dreams of clients. I also find being around the great employees and volunteers of NVFS extremely uplifting."
Encouraged to volunteer at an early age by his mother, Dan also views this as an opportunity to pass the volunteer torch to his 10 year old son Kyle. We are equally inspired by Dan's story and thank him for his empathy, selflessness and enthusiasm to help the most vulnerable members of our community.
