Our Volunteers Out in the Community

We love our volunteers and want to send a special thank you to these lovely women that were out in the community last month talking to expecting and new moms.

Healthy Women's Day

Our volunteer and Summerville support group leader, Tori Leggett, was out at the Summerville Family YMCA's Healthy Women's Day. Tori reached out to PSC last year interested in becoming a peer support facilitator. As a mother of two, she experienced a postpartum mood disorder with both of her children and after her recovery knew she wanted to help other women going through what she went through. Tori has been instrumental in helping PSC expand into the Summerville area. She leads the support group at the Summerville YMCA on the 1st Tuesday of the month. 

When asked why she supports local moms, Tori said, "This group is so special to me. I love facilitating and volunteering with this group because if someone didn't take an hour out of their busy lives, then I wouldn't be here today. I want someone to feel that same feeling of hope." 

Thank you, Tori! You are special to us too!

 

Labor of Love Pregnancy Expo

Our fabulous volunteers, Mary and Candie, came out on a Saturday morning to help at the Labor of Love Pregnancy Expo at The Shifa Free Clinic! More than 200 people were in attendance and these wonderful ladies talked with many new and expecting moms about our organization and the signs and symptoms of postpartum depression and anxiety. Both ladies are new volunteers at our organization and jumped right in by helping out at this important event. Mary even lined up a sitter so she could come out and help. Thank you ladies for your support and for helping moms and families in Charleston. We could not do this work without you!

 

We also want to thank our walk leaders, Moms' Run committee members and phone and email support volunteers for all your support last month. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please reach out to our Development Coordinator, Amber Allen at amber@ppdsupport.org.
