Jess Norman, a SHARE Neighbor & community volunteer
 

Jessica Norman is a mom, graphic artist, web designer, business owner, community volunteer and a SHARE Neighbor. She also has an adorable little five year old daughter who goes everywhere with her - learning how to be a giving member of her community right from the start!

We recently caught up with this very talented, very busy professional to find out why she works volunteering into her life. 

You juggle a lot of priorities, between being a mom and a business owner. Why do you make time to volunteer?

Education is one of the best tools our children have in creating a happy and healthy life, but some kids and families in our community need a little extra help getting that strong start – whether it be tutoring, school supplies, or just a mentor.

We’ve listed some local organizations that are doing amazing work for today’s youth – both here in Charlotte and in places around the world. Some just need financial donations; some need volunteers; and, some need a little of each. Take a look and think about how you can make a difference.
