In honor of National Volunteer Week our staff has written about their favorite volunteer experience. We love to get out in our community as much as we can! Alexa’s favorite experience was when she volunteered for the Rape Crisis Center.


“I am extremely passionate about the Northwest Arkansas Rape Crisis Center (I wrote about that passion in this blog). I’ve wanted to give back to the NWA Rape Crisis Center after all they did for me but never could find a way that worked out in the past. After meeting with Anne Shelley, the Director, we found a perfect fit – marketing! I had never considered marketing, graphic design, etc. as a volunteer task, but it can be! Soon after our first meeting, Anne asked me to help them redesign their “1 in 3, a concert that cares” event logo and flyer. I had so much fun with this project because I had so much passion for the work! I have also had the opportunity to sit with Anne during an interview with the Democrat Gazette to share a bit about my story and contribute to the larger story about the NWA Rape Crisis Center’s work. I hope to continue volunteering for the Rape Crisis Center in any capacity that I can, including offering my professional skills whenever needed.” -Alexa McGriff
