Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Month, Kira Hawes! Kira has volunteered at the MOST since September 2017.

Why do you volunteer at the MOST?

As a child, I would always visit the MOST and spend a lot of time in the Playhouse. I wanted to volunteer at the MOST to give others an awesome experience like the ones I had.

What is your favorite part about volunteering?

My favorite part of volunteering has to be either helping out with the Syracuse City School District programs or doing any of the special events, like the Polar Express Parties. Seeing the community come together is so cool! And of course, all the wonderful MOST staff and Science Educators make the experience wonderful.

What are your hobbies/interests? Where else have you volunteered or been involved in the community?

My hobbies and interests are all things fitness and food related. I also like to stay connected and involved in my community. I also volunteer at the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital and Hope for the Bereaved.

Sign up and volunteer today!
