Bridging Volunteer Recognized for 3M Gives Global Award11/13/2018 by Rebecca Toews
This month, 3M recognized Bridging Saturday volunteer Kaycee Overcash with the 3MGives Volunteer Award. Kaycee was selected as one of just 29 individuals globally for this award.
Kaycee has been part of our volunteer team since 2014 and during that time has donated over 100 hours to Bridging! Additionally, she has directed her 2016, 2017, and 2018 3Mgives Volunteer Match grants to Bridging totaling $1,000. Kaycee is a great Bridging ambassador! Her enthusiasm is contagious and her willingness to get others involved in Bridging is greatly appreciated. We are very fortunate that Kaycee has chosen Bridging as one of the many nonprofit organizations she supports!
The award celebrates extraordinary 3M volunteers who generously share their time and talents to improve lives in the areas of education, community or the environment. 3M will donate $3,000 to Bridging, and the 3Mgives Volunteer Match program will donate an additional $500 grant.
What we do at Bridging would be impossible without our volunteers. In 2017 alone, 6,225 volunteers donated 78,680 hours to serve families in need. While Kaycee is “just one” of many, her commitment to Bridging is truly extraordinary. Kaycee provides amazing customer service and also helps educate our donors about Bridging and our needs. That means happy donors who understand their part in making a difference in their community. She also helps clients who are here to pick up their furniture. Her ability to make clients feel comfortable and well taken care of is truly a gift.
Not only does Kaycee donate her time, she’s also passionate about providing household goods to Bridging. She often hosts collections at 3M or with her family and friends. Kaycee continues to spread the word at 3M about our need for stuff as well as our need for volunteers.
“We are proud to recognize 3Mers for their dedication to enriching lives in our communities,” said Michael Stroik, director of 3M’s community outreach organization, 3Mgives. “This marks the 32nd year of the 3Mgives Volunteer Awards, and we continue to be inspired by the many ways our people improve our communities.”
