In this month's Volunteer Tails, meet one of our very awesome volunteers, Alyse!
How long have you been volunteering with SitStayRead? 8 months.
Why did you decide to volunteer with SitStayRead? I love working with children and have always been an avid reader, so SitStayRead is the perfect place to share my passion for books and help kids discover the joy of reading in a setting where they feel comfortable and encouraged.
Do you have any pets? No, which is another advantage of volunteering at SitStayRead- I get my puppy fix!
Favorite book as a child? Roald Dahl’s The BFG and Matilda.
Favorite book now? Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.
A movie you could recite by heart: Mean Girls (Tina Fey can do no wrong.)
Favorite volunteer memory: Helping a child who said he didn't have any attributes that made him special brainstorm and come up with a list that made him beam with pride.
Favorite restaurant in Chicago: I have so many! You can’t beat brunch at The Bongo Room.
Your favorite way to spend a day off in the city: Being outside, exploring different parts of the city, spending time with my friends, and trying new restaurants.
