Volunteer Appreciation Week Spotlight: Angie Madrid

Angie Madrid, an amazingly dedicated YWCA Seneca volunteer, was featured in our blog last January.  Since then, Angie has continued to contribute immensely to our work, and we want to recognize her once again during Volunteer Appreciation Week 2013!  Watch and read below to find out why Angie and the YWCA remain such great partners, year after year. 

In October 2011, Angie Madrid joined the Advancement team on a tour of Family Village Redmond, this was her first introduction to our team and her first volunteer hours. From the moment she met everyone, her upbeat personality, infectious smile and dedication touched us all.

In the eighteen months that Angie has supported the Donor & Information Services team, she learned the how to use the Raiser’s Edge system and has added 1,200 constituent records to our database, 1,111 gifts in kind and registered 568 people for events! It goes without saying that Angie’s contributions are immeasurable.  Angie started work at a full-time job in downtown Seattle the day after the 2012 Seattle Luncheon and in the process of her interview, negotiated with her employer to volunteer two hours on two mornings a week.  She reminds us that volunteering doesn’t necessarily need to be working directly with the people we serve. Her administrative skills deserve a gold medal.
