CVN AmeriCorps Photo Contest Winners!

Photo Contest Winner #1: Tiffany Tubby

Tiffany Tubby, an AmeriCorps Member with the Little Sisters of the Assumption Family Health Services, reads to a young child at a local Children's Book drive she helped organize for the East Harlem Community.


"The most rewarding parts of this year includes interacting with people who remember my name on the streets after I had spoken with them for only minutes, teaching and tutoring the children who gave me a big hug when they saw me, and communicating with a family using body gestures when words would not suffice. It was a blessing to see love inside such painful and dark circumstances." 

-Tiffany Tubby

 

Photo Contest Winner #2: Casey Sharp






Casey Sharp is an AmeriCorps Member with Colorado Vincentian Volunteers. As an Employment Aid at Lutheran Family Services, Casey assists refugees seeking and obtaining employment in order to attain early self-sufficiency. In this picture, Casey meets with Gheorghi, a refugee from Moldova.

"The most rewarding part of my AmeriCorps experience has been the opportunity to learn about our common humanity through my work with refugees from all over the world."
