Volunteer of the Month - Cole Miner

Tod’s Corner & Esther’s Pantry
Volunteer since November 2016

What drew you to volunteer at Our House?
After being a client for several years and knowing its powerful affect first hand, I took the opportunity to give back and really fall in love with volunteering for Our House.

What is your favorite aspect of volunteering?
I really love interacting with the community in a service aspect and connecting clients with items they need and will find comfort in using in their lives. Being able to volunteers at Esther’s and Tod’s is my biggest source of pride in my life right now.

What do you do other than your volunteer gig?
Outside of volunteering, I enjoy writing fairy tales, and other various art forms. I continue to work with people in sex education with a focus on kink & leather. I also enjoy watching movies and shows, as well as staying in shape by hiking and working out with my boyfriend.

What is something about you that would surprise others?
I tend to leave a lot on the table, but most people are surprised to hear that I have several gold medals in running, including one from the Chicago Gay Games.
