We were so excited when Celebrate Arkansas reached out to feature our amazing volunteer, Dartt Schoonmaker, in their “Putting People First” feature. Dartt absolutely puts the needs of the children first in everything he does. Some days, you’ll see him mowing the lawn and landscaping, other days you’ll see him organizing donations in the warehouse. But his favorite thing is to meet the needs of the kids. If a child comes to us with shoes that are falling apart, it’s Mr. Dartt who finds them a brand new pair. If their favorite sport is basketball, Mr. Dartt makes sure they have the right ball to shoot hoops. If the clothes they came in with are dirty and ill-fitting, Mr. Dartt makes sure that they have brand new, clean outfits that they can be proud of. He’s kind of like Santa Claus around here for the kiddos! We don’t know what we would do without him and we are so happy that Celebrate was able to recognize him in this way. Thank you, Dartt, for everything that you do to support our kids and our staff!
