On February 16, the New York office held its first Taproot volunteer appreciation event of the year. We invited our amazing PBCs to share their stories of how they MAKE IT MATTER, and now we’d like to share them with you.
Merryl is a freelance copywriter who has worked on five Service Grants and counting. She was honored as one of New York’s Pro Bono Superstars and has been an active supporter of Taproot.
“When you can do something, you have to do it,” Merryl says. “I had a teacher in high school who said to me, ‘You’ve got to take that personality of yours and make the world better with it.’ I took that very much to heart, and I go through each day trying to make at least one person smile and laugh.”
