"Providing education to homeless children gets to the core of our social problems"
Donor Spotlight: Robin Nahin, Owner of Firestick Pottery Studio
Please tell us how you first got involved with Step Up Ventura.
When I met Kate Curtin and she explained what Step Up Ventura is all about, I knew it is a great community service.
What is your philosophy on giving to a cause?
I will give to a cause if I believe it gives direct services. We all need to take care of each other.
Why did you decide to give to Step Up Ventura?
The idea of providing education to the homeless children gets to the core of our social problems.
When you donated to Step Up Ventura, how did that make you feel?
It made me feel great!
What do you wish others knew about Step Up Ventura and their work?
I wish they had a wider audience so they could see the good work they do.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about donating?
I’d say that’s a great idea.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic affecting several communities and populations, what do you think will change most significantly concerning supporting organizations, volunteer work, and the motivations to serve or give to a cause?
There will be more causes and fewer people to give to them. Our resources will be spread thin.
What types of future activities and events would you like to see at Step Up Ventura?
Pottery parties. I’d be happy to host a pottery party as a fundraiser.
Thank you, Robin!
