Stories of our community involvement
Volunteering her time as baby hugger for Beyond the Blues Postpartum Support group at The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society is just one-way April Martin gives her time to help families in need. “Without April's support we would not be able to offer childminding services for our moms experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety,” says Kelly Paley, Director of Fund Development at The Bridge Youth & Family Services.
Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union is delighted to announce April as the 3rd recipient of the 2021 SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award for her exceptional volunteerism. She’s known as a passionate philanthropist who does so much good for the children and families in her community through her work with PurKids Foundation, Mamas for Mamas and The Bridge Youth & Family Services. Congratulations on your award!
