Meet Our Board – Nicole Bowden, Treasurer

HandsOn Jacksonville claims bragging rights to an amazing board of directors! We’d like you to get to know them all, so over the next few weeks we’ll be shining the spotlight on them. You’ll get an inside peek at who they are, what they do, what they’re passionate about and how they’re making our community a better place for everyone.

HOJ:  What inspires you to volunteer?

NB:  I first came to HandsOn Jacksonville through Blueprint for Leadership, HOJ’s program for training, equipping and engaging leaders for service on a nonprofit board of directors.  Through Blueprint, I simply fell in love with HandsOn Jacksonville and all of the work they do.  I’ve been fortunate enough to work along the remarkable team of people that is HOJ ever since!

HOJ:  What volunteer activities do you currently participate in?

NB:  In addition to my service on the board of HOJ, I volunteer with a number of their partner organizations who serve our community in so many wonderful ways.  The common thread that draws me back to these events time and time again, is that I leave with a deep sense of fulfillment, knowing that my efforts are truly making a difference.

HOJ:  What would you say to someone who might be considering volunteering for the first time?

NB:  It doesn’t matter how much you give, just give.  Together we can take action that will change the world.
