Meet Dolores Collins
I invited a CASA representative to speak to our PTO about CASA and I signed up for volunteer training.
What motivates you to volunteer?
It’s in my DNA. I come from a family of preachers, coaches and church workers. Although my parents were both legally blind, they were active in their churches and with the State Federation of the Blind. I love working with kids and seeing hard work pay off.
From volunteer training I have learned to be careful not to judge. Keep an open mind. It is very important to keep a confidence.
What would you tell your friends about your volunteer experience with Child Advocates of Fort Bend?
Working with Child Advocates of Fort Bend is one of the best things I have ever done. I have recruited two friends to do the same. One has already started and one is clearing her schedule.
What do you like to do in your spare time (hobbies/interests)?
I’m a sports fanatic – particularly basketball and golf. This year, I am concentrating on doing family history research. Several members of my family have now done our DNA and we meet to compare notes.
What is a fun fact you would like people to know about you?
I coached boys and girls golf in high school for 10 years.
