Volunteer Spotlight: Tou Chang

Mr. Tou has been volunteering in the Yellow Class at the Little Light House since 2011. He faithfully comes every Monday and Thursday afternoon to serve some of our youngest kiddos. To say that Tou is dedicated to the work of the yellow class is an understatement. He consistently is there to support both the students and teachers alike, however they need.  He works late


hours at his personal job, yet still manages to come each week, always making the LLH a priority. Even when we know he must be exhausted, it never shows in his appearance or performance. He is always ready to help with any additional projects or tasks, whatever they may be. He routinely helps with our staff kids involved in the SKIP program which requires him to come on Fridays as well. Each student that has the opportunity to work with him enjoys that time immensely.

Volunteering is just one of the roles Tou plays at our school- he also serves as an ambassador. He is continually recruiting others in the community to get involved with our school. The youth group he mentors has taken projects home over school breaks, and now his brother is volunteering weekly, too! He also gets involved with some of our annual fundraisers, such as Laps for Little Ones. Tou collects money for our school and encourages others to get involved raising funds and awareness.

Aside from giving his time, Tou often brings supplies and snacks for the class. He even provided a microwave for Yellow Class when they were in need. For all of his amazing work, Tou was awarded with the Children’s Services Volunteer of the Year award in 2013 at our annual awards banquet, but we truly cannot thank him enough.

The Little Light House is so blessed to have Tou, and others like him, who help serve our children and carry out our Mission. We could not do what we do without the dedicated hearts of passionate volunteers.
