A Passion for Growing Healthy Families: Meet Our Wildflower Health Volunteers

Apr 20 2020
Raphael House

In addition to their passion for growing healthy families with their personalized healthcare technology, Wildflower Health focuses on giving back to their community. Wildflower Health partners with Raphael House to provide financial contributions, in-kind donations, and volunteers. Lately, Wildflower Health volunteers can be found at Raphael House preparing and serving delicious dinners or gardening in our rooftop garden.

We deeply value our partnership and appreciate Wildflower Health’s help in keeping a clean, safe, and stable Residential Shelter for homeless families. If you are interested in getting your organization involved, you can find more information about corporate volunteer opportunities here on our website. While many of our group volunteer activities have been put on pause in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Raphael House looks forward to welcoming many more volunteers once it is safe to do so again.

What is your organization’s name and how long have you been volunteering at Raphael House?
Our organization’s name is Wildflower Health, and we’ve been volunteering at Raphael House for about 1.5 years now!

In what ways do you volunteer at Raphael House? 
We volunteer through the Corporate & Community chefs program, where we help prepare and serve dinner alongside the amazing staff at Raphael House. We also have gardening days, where we spend the afternoon on the beautiful roof, planting flowers and working on gardening projects. We have a lot of team members spread across the country, who we get involved through virtual fundraisers and donation programs, like the holiday Adopt-A-Family program!

Tell us about one of your favorite moments or a meaningful experience as a volunteer at Raphael House.
Our favorite moments are when we get to interact with the incredible staff and families of Raphael House. Everyone is always so kind and welcoming. We’re always looking forward to our next visit! One meaningful experience that stands out to us was at the Raphael House Gala in 2019. We heard incredible stories of current and past families firsthand. It was so powerful to witness the magic of Raphael House’s programs and mission at play.

Why is volunteering with Raphael House important to Wildflower Health?
Volunteering with Raphael House is important to Wildflower Health because our passion for growing healthy families extends beyond our work in healthcare and into our own communities as well. We are a 100% mission-centered company, and it is wonderful to have the opportunity to create volunteer opportunities for our entire team in partnership with Raphael House.

If you could encourage someone to volunteer at Raphael House, what would you say?
We would tell them that the magic of Raphael House is indescribable and can only be felt by spending time with the staff and families. We can’t recommend it enough.  If you’re looking to get involved with an unparalleled, respected nonprofit that feels like a family, we encourage you to volunteer at Raphael House!
