This March, Hope For The Warriors would like to recognize Sanjana Kanaparthi as our Volunteer of the Month!

Sanjana, a high school student from Fairfax, VA, joined our HOPE family in January 2022 when she selflessly reached out to us with the desire to give back to the military community. Since then, she has consistently shown up and dedicated her time to supporting our mission.

At HOPE, we pride ourselves on our ability to personally connect with members of our warrior community, partners, and donors. We recognize the value in hearing their stories and forming bonds that last a lifetime. This would not be possible without the help of volunteers like Sanjana, who ensures our donors hear the difference their generosity has made.

“I volunteer for HOPE because it is such a great organization that really cares about military families and donors,” said Sanjana. “It’s a delight to make calls and tell these donors that their gift was impactful. I believe that people should always try to give back to the community in good faith and citizenship.”

Angie Parker, HOPE’s volunteer manager, has worked closely with Sanjana since day one and nominated her for this recognition.

“Sanjana has been an asset to HOPE since the day she started,” said Angie. “I know I can always rely on her with any task needed. She is so responsible, quick to respond, and you can tell that she truly cares about the organization. It’s great to see a high school student step up like she has.”

There are several ways volunteers of all ages and experiences can bring their talents and skills to HOPE. Whether making donor calls like Sanjana or coming out to support our events, there is a place for everyone on our team!

With plans to continue her education after high school and study computer science, we know that Sanjana will do big things. We can’t thank her enough for all she has done for HOPE in just a short amount of time and will continue to support her, just as she supports us each and every day!
