Together, We Can End Epilepsy

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Together, our volunteers make it possible for Epilepsy Foundation New England to get critical resources, information, and support to members of our communities who are living with epilepsy.

The Independent Sector calculates the value of volunteer time as $24.14/hour. Our volunteers contributed over 4,700 hours in 2017. That translates to more than $110,000 in services to the Foundation. Thank you!

Volunteer of The Month

Marie Libbin, May 2019

Epilepsy Foundation New England is pleased to announce the May 2019 Volunteer of the Month: Marie Libbin. Marie has been involved with our Purple Camp at East Brookfield MA and is a favorite counselor of our campers. She leads the campers enthusiastically in all activities and is a well-organized leader who keeps each of the camp groups on schedule and having fun! Marie is a calm presence when needed to soothe a homesick camper.

Camp Administrator, Sarah Specht says, "Marie has the personality that all our campers gravitate to. She is caring, compassionate and fun! I love when Marie is available to join us at our programs and the campers especially do as well. She stays in touch with campers and has been a wonderful asset to not only the Purple Camp program but all of Epilepsy Foundation New England. Thank you Marie for all you have done and your compassion you have shown to all the campers."
