Volunteer Spotlight: Jon Peters
Superstar volunteer Jon Peters has dedicated hundreds of hours over the past 20 years volunteering for organizations and serving those in need in the Southern California community.
Having lived in Southern California for decades, Jon spent many years in Pasadena, California, before moving to Orange County. Jon was introduced to Family Promise of Orange County through his church, Trinity United Presbyterian Church Santa Ana, a Family Promise partner congregation. Jon has since spent the past five years volunteering to help Family Promise families. He has volunteered at Trinity when the church has hosted families on their campus, and Jon currently also helps out around the Family Promise office with a wide variety of tasks - whatever is needed to help out!
Jon says he loves working with Family Promise because “they are a national organization that challenges families to get on their feet again, but also provides families with helpful resources to accomplish these goals.” One of Jon’s favorite memories from volunteering with Family Promise over the years is the Christmas festivities. He says that helping with the Christmas presents and decorations always puts a smile on his face knowing that he can help families experience some holiday cheer during a difficult time.
Currently, Jon is selling his business, which means that he will have even more time to volunteer! We at Family Promise could not be more appreciative for the dedication and commitment Jon has shown as a volunteer for our program. Thank you, Jon!
