‘Almost like a calling’
On a spring day outside Wellspan’s York Hospital, plastic pinwheels dance and spin in the breeze, shimmering in the sun. But, where did they come from?
Natalie Fuhrman can tell you that story, about what it takes each year to get those symbols of National Child Abuse Awareness Month in place in York. Natalie, a manager at RKL, has sat with other United Way volunteers among those fragile flags, separating the torn, mud-crusted pinwheels from those that will be used the following year.
Fixing each one, just so.
“When you see the good that you can do for the community, it feels almost like a calling,” she says. “It just gives you a really good feeling.”
