Volunteer of the Month

North Light is fortunate to have a talented pool of more than 650 volunteers, offering nearly 10,000 hours of service a year. Whether it’s a high-profile project like the KaBOOM! playground build, or the daily homework help for KidZone children the Villanova University RUIBAL students provide throughout the school year, North Light realizes the value of all the volunteers, and appreciates their contribution to so many projects and services.

Stephanie Nolt, owner Stephanie Nolt Photography, first began volunteering for North Light in 2011 when she joined the Pints for North Light committee. In February, 2012 she generously donated pro bono photography services for the 75th Anniversary Hobo Ball & Auction. Check out her photos of the people and the venue. In 2013 she stepped up to be a volunteer co-chair of the Pints committee, using her talent and connections to acquire most of the donated food for the event. We are thankful for her hard work, and recognize Stephanie is one of many volunteers who make North Light’s events successful year after year.

“There is no greater joy than to be of service to others and North Light Community Center does just that for our community, it serves people. I am blessed to be able to volunteer and help fundraise for them. It is my goal to help ensure that they can continue to open up their doors and their hearts to everyone around them.” Stephanie Nolt

chris-riglerChristopher Rigler, pictured in the green North Light t-shirt, has been volunteering twice a week for more than three years to help with the food cupboard. When asked what his greatest strength is, Chris replied with a laugh, “It’s my strength!” Not only does he help unload the vehicles when they arrive from Whole Foods and Target, he goes one step further and will carry the grocery bags for many of the senior clients to their cars.
