Each year Foster Friends likes to recognize one Outstanding
Volunteer in our community that not only assists our non-profit but who also strives to be a community advocate.
This year, it is our sincere honor to recognize Angel
Whitaker as our Foster Friends Volunteer of the Year!
Her involvement began several years ago when she attended one
of our fundraising events at CycleBar. She inquired about our non-profit after
the class, and immediately began devoting her time and talents to helping the
foster children in Acadiana! Now, as owner of IM=X Pilates & Fitness, she
sponsors various events for Foster Friends and continues to volunteer her time
throughout the year.
Angel has dedicated countless hours at Christmas time—from
gift wrapping to event planning and day-of preparations. She has a positive
attitude in everything she does and tackles any obstacle with joy and purpose
in her heart.
Angel has been lead volunteer for our Annual Recruitment
Event for the past two years. She continues to make it bigger and better each
year, and remains focused on connecting the community with the children who are
in need of adoption.
Angel has a caring heart and a passion for helping children! She
is an inspiration to others in our community, and we would like to take the
time to recognize all that she has done! We are extremely grateful for her
efforts and contributions to Foster Friends over the years.
Thank you, Angel, for being such an Outstanding Volunteer!
