With Love, has yet again reached another great growth point. Over the past month we doubled our warehouse space from 1,500 sq feet to over 3,000 sq feet. The new layout is beautiful and makes it much easier to work and to find things. Another exciting event is hiring our first employee Krissy Hires, as our Executive Director. We are so delighted!
Krissy is going to be working 20 hours a week to start. She is leaving her current job in Real Estate to follow her passion, helping kids in foster care. Krissy and her husband Joe have a desire to be foster parents one day. Volunteering at With Love, seemed like an easy first step into the foster care world. Little did she know that she would fall deeper in love with helping these families. So much so that she joined the Board of Directors 7 months ago. When With Love, realized that we were to a point of needing someone to run the day in and day out activities Krissy knew right away she wanted to change careers to work on something she is truly passionate about.
As the President and Founder of With Love, I’m so excited for this next phase. It gives me such joy to have such a quality person see the growth With Love, has made and want to join in helping us serve kids in foster care. Personally, I’m delighted to lead With Love, as well as speak at a variety of events about what we are doing. It will be really nice to have someone else do more of the daily tasks as well as help with the strategy and direction With Love, is going.
I have had the past three years of getting to know my the wonderful donors and volunteers. Please take a moment if you see Krissy to introduce yourself and tell her how long you have been involved at With Love,. You can also contact her at email@example.com.
This new phase is a dream come true for me. Thank you for all of your support whether it be in your donations of time, money, or items. We are becoming a staple in the Portland area for foster parents. Many foster parents depend on us monthly to help support their journey. I hope we can continue to exude love and honor to the most vulnerable kids in Portland.
