Volunteer Spotlight – Donna McNeil

Volunteers are vital to any nonprofit organization. They are also great ambassadors for the organization and its cause. That’s exactly who Donna McNeil is. Donna is a member of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution in the Daniel Boone Chapter of Boone, NC. Donna understands the mission of Crossnore School & Children’s Home and says that has helped her to engage with the children here. “I have a love for kids and it’s on my heart always to help out,” she said.

Donna serves as a Visiting Resource who spends time with a child or children who may not have family who can visit. Along with her Chapter, Donna is also a cottage sponsor at Belk Cottage. The Chapter often holds collection drives for needed items to go into the Birdcage. We are especially appreciative of Donna’s willingness to share the Crossnore mission with others.

“I have a love for kids and it’s on my heart always to help out,” she said.

She is responsible for bringing in many new volunteers as she has shared her own experience here. “Donna’s special! She really is a good advocate for Crossnore as she shares about our mission with many people who ultimately become involved as volunteers and donors,” said Courtney Lane, Annual Giving and Outreach Coordinator.

Thank you, Donna, for all that you do for our children!

Racism is Trauma

Crossnore School & Children’s Home exists to be a sanctuary for children and their families and racism destroys sanctuary. Racism is trauma and is part of systemic community trauma that has long term negative impacts on people and communities of color. Crossnore believes that black lives matter, and we are committed to building an anti-racist organization and supporting the development of racial equity in our communities.
