Our Volunteers are the heart of our store!

Our awesome volunteers are the heart of our store and what makes Second Impressions a huge success! While the ages of our volunteers vary, one thing that they all have in common is their dedication to Christian Education.

    “When approached to help at Second Impressions, we initially signed on as a means of filling idle time.  A lot has changed since that day in 2004. It is exciting to be a part of this group that supports the Kalamazoo Christian School System.  Being a graduate and parents of graduates, we receive a feeling of satisfaction supporting the schools in this fashion.  We are thankful to be a part of the store’s contribution to these schools.  We have made new friends at the store and have a great camaraderie.  Everyone is focused on supporting Christian education.  We are thankful for this opportunity to participate and serve.”

    Terri Sportel is currently one of the Wednesday volunteers at Second Impressions. She says “after 24 years of having three children in the Christians schools I love being involved and contributing by volunteering. Now that my two grandchildren are in the elementary schools I am especially glad to be able to have a place where I can use my 15 years of design experience and I really enjoy having a creative outlet!  I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to contribute and have a great time.  It’s a fun thing to do with a friend!”
  • Jim Bosch
    Volunteer Highlight - Jim Bosch

    Jim Bosch has been working one Saturday afternoon a month for more than five years.  Jim and Lisa have 2 daughters who have graduated from KSCA and have one daughter still in the system.  Jim is a very busy parent who works at Mall City Container and has served on the school-board and as a night custodian at East Christian; Lisa is one of our fabulous bus drivers.  Jim says “I am so thankful for second Impressions and I feel a sense of responsibility to give back to the store.  I want to help make the store successful to support other parents, but I also have found that it’s an enjoyable way to interact with the Community on our school’s behalf.  I’d like to challenge each parent to come and spend a few hours here, once you’re in the door I think you will be hooked!”
