Kevin Newton

Kevin Newton joined the Providence stair climb committee in 2013.  Kevin obtained a corporate grant from his company, CVS, for this event. He was instrumental in getting ALA staff in the door to man tables to recruit climbers at both CVS corporate buildings in RI.  Kevin took time out of his busy day to recruit with staff.  Kevin showed team spirit when he donated some of his fundraising to a new person he recruited to join his team to help her raise the minimum fundraising.  He assisted at the practice climb, leading climbers up the stairs for 2 hours.  Kevin helped with the accounting aspect of monies brought in by climbers the night before the event. He was the volunteer coordinator and implemented the volunteer orientation the day of the climb with success.

You can easily describe Kevin as a key volunteer who took his task seriously.  For a first time climb committee member, he did an outstanding job!
