Meet UCC Volunteer Ministries volunteer Gail McAfee

The Rev. Gail McAfee is currently serving as a UCC Volunteer Ministries’ volunteer in North Carolina. She was brought in to provide mold remediation following Hurricane Florence. Why does she volunteer? “That’s what I was taught to do,” she said. “I was raised by pastors and was taught to respect all people, regardless of their current status in life. Everyone is just as important as the person wearing the suit.”

“As humans, we don’t always want to see others get more than we have, but the Bible teaches us to love God, and to love our neighbor. To me, that is what is at the core of volunteering. When people see my love for helping others, it sets an example. Helping others catches on.”
