A Conversation with

Allison Pinsch

 
Why do you give your time to volunteer with LINKages?

I volunteer with LINKages because I strongly believe in their vision of building a strong vibrant community where youth and seniors thrive. When I was 13, I spent a summer with my grandma and we went to her Seniors Center every day. It was here that I learned how to play crib, how to crochet, and was told many stories about my grandma and her friends' pasts. That was a summer I have always remembered because I learned so much! I strongly believe that older generations have so much knowledge to share and at the same time they have so much to learn from younger generations. I am happy to be a part of an organization that facilitates this type of intergenerational learning!
