April 2014

TomPassafiume_3Congratulations to Tom Passafiume for being named April 2014 Volunteer of the Month! As an after-school tutor, Tom works tirelessly to make sure the students have their homework done each day and that they aren’t driving the program staff too crazy.

TOM: I heard about 826DC from my wife, Andrea. She had attended a volunteer orientation and thought that I would really enjoy working with the students as part of the after-school tutoring. So, I signed up and have been volunteering since the Summer of 2013.

826DC: What is your favorite part of volunteering?

TOM: The kids, the kids, the kids, and the kids, and of course all of the other wonderful 826 volunteers and staff! It has been really fun and rewarding to help the students get excited about the possibilities of reading and writing!

826DC: What are you most excited about right now?

TOM: Right now, I am excited about putting up my snow boots and two snow shovels to enjoy a warm DC summer with my wife, Andrea, and my dog, Cassie.
