DSAGT Volunteer Nominated for National Philanthropy Day
Yesterday the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Northwest Ohio (AFP NWO) celebrated their 33rd Annual National Philanthropy Day. The event is way to show gratitude to individuals who have significantly contributed to the welfare of the communities all across Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Each year, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo selects a volunteer who has made a significant impact on the organization.
This year, DSAGT nominated volunteer, Amanda Fintel. Amanda has been working with the organization over the past few years on multiple projects. She has organized the Diggin’ for Down syndrome fundraiser with Perrysburg High School Volleyball for the past three years, she currently serves on our Program Committee and she also served as an instructor for our Smart Start Kindergarten Prep Program this past summer.
Amanda is an Intervention specialist at Perrysburg Schools and is also currently the Assistant Varsity Volleyball Coach for the Perrysburg High School girls’ volleyball team. When she’s not busy teaching, coaching or volunteering, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her brother Chad, who has Down syndrome.
