Volunteer of the Month: September 2011
We are proud to announce that 826 Boston's September volunteer of the month is Tianna Tagami! Tianna tirelessly worked as a tutor during summer camp, helped with book stitching and mailings and even lead an August work shop entitled "Need to Know." She continues to volunteer during after school and Saturday tutoring and now that she is newly engaged (Congratulations!) she has decided to add 826 Boston to her wedding registry - what a bride to be!
"I volunteer at 826 because I am addicted to the
energy of the kids, and it is my great privilege to help them blaze their trails and share their gifts."
Tianna is super-stoked to be volunteering at 826 Boston. After trying fruitlessly, for many years, to get an 826 in Phoenix, she moved 3,000 miles to land at the Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute. To support her volunteering habit, she spends her days designing digital learning experiences at Cengage, an educational publisher, and her nights greeting customers and slinging burgers and drinks at Joshua Tree in Davis Square.
Thank you, Tianna, for all your hard work and generosity!
Thank you, Harvard Book Store, for sponsoring our Volunteer of the Month program!
