Volunteering for CACH can be a very rewarding experience. Just ask Corinne Rebinksi of Mechanicsburg, Pa. Rebinski is the senior manager for Brown Schultz Sheridan Fritz, a certified public accountants and business advisors firm in Camp Hill, Pa. She started volunteering for CACH in 2011 and continues to volunteer today.
The main reason Rebinski decided to volunteer for CACH was because the Harrisburg Rotary Club had established a homeless initiatives committee, of which she is co-chair, in order to find opportunities to help Harrisburg’s homeless community. Upon searching for these opportunities, she came across CACH’s annual Project Homeless Connect event, which provides resources to the hardest-to-reach homeless individuals.
“Since our club is established in the City of Harrisburg, and we are comprised of many members of the area business community, I am passionate that we need to “put our money where our mouth is” and offer our service to help address the issues of Harrisburg’s homeless community,” Rebinski says. “CACH is certainly the premier organization dedicated to this cause, so it is a good fit for us.”
Rebinski is very passionate about helping address the issues of Harrisburg’s homeless community. Since 2011, she has coordinated volunteers from the Rotary Club to help, interviewed applicants for a temporary cash assistance program, and co-chaired the children’s room committee. For the children’s room committee, Rebinski has designed and set up the children’s room. This has included addressing the needs of homeless children by designing activity and care areas, obtaining equipment supplies, and being in charge of set-up and clean-up.
“I believe that for the issues of the homeless community, the best results come from a united community effort, and that is exactly what CACH is designed to do,” Rebinksi says. “Many diverse people working together to solve problems. You can’t get much better than that.”
