Paul and Enid have been volunteering with the Foundation since July 2017 and have donated 175 hours of their time thus far. Paul and Enid are weekly office volunteers who help out with anything birthday-related, as well as special projects. Paul is a retired social worker and Enid is a retired teacher. Since they have more free time, they decided to give back!
Paul and Enid are passionate about foster care due to having fostered one of Enid’s students! One school day, Enid knew it was a student’s birthday, so she cutely asked her class, “Who has a birthday today?!” No one raised their hand. The unknowing little girl was the child they later fostered. She was eventually reunified with her mother and although she left Paul and Enid’s home, she never left their hearts.
This is Paul and Enid’s reason for volunteering- to do so in her honor. They have a fondness for specifically helping with birthdays due to this. To date, Paul & Enid have mailed over 1,000 birthday cards and prepared many birthday gifts. They also call our 18+ youth on their birthdays and wish them a very happy birthday.
In their spare time, they greatly enjoy watching their one-year-old granddaughter and spending time with their family. Enid is also an avid crafter who collects Florida seashells and has a passion for literacy. She loves to help kids enjoy reading! Paul loves all sports and his favorite band is The Beatles and has lots of Beatles memorabilia to prove this!
We are so glad to have this dynamic duo on the FFC volunteer team!
