“I volunteer because as a mother of a Wonderland alumni, I know the amazing benefits early-intervention services can have on a child’s life. I wanted to help advocate for other families in similar positions, by working to grow the services Wonderland offers so children can reach their fullest potential. I have been so blessed by Wonderland that I wanted to pass it on.”
–Christina Barzare, Board Member

A pastry chef by trade, I don’t have a lot of spare time. I volunteer once a year with Wonderland by creating and donating delicious cakes and cupcakes to the annual auction in the spring. People bid on my cakes during the Dessert Dash, and all the proceeds go directly to helping kids. Volunteering in this capacity makes me feel good and lets me use my creativity!
After moving back to Seattle recently, I found myself with some free time and stumbled across Wonderland online. Wanting to be more productive and give back to my new community, I volunteered my services. This beautiful accident began as filing and labeling for a few hours a week and has transformed into something so much more. Currently, I help with the annual golf tournament and auction. 2016 is my second year working to acquire in-kind donations as well as sponsorship’s. I love the work! I get out into the community, connect with local businesses, and am helping to support Wonderland’s kids. This year I will get to attend the Dinner and Auction in person. I’m hoping to win the Disneyland tickets!
A native of Washington D.C., I served overseas in the U.S. Navy then went to school in the district, where I also worked for several years in the credit union industry. I’ve lived in the south but finally settled in Seattle, serving as president of the Group Health Credit Union for 20 years. I am happily spending my retirement pursuing musical interests, including playing the bass trombone, and my avocation, photography. I’ve been honored to contribute my photography to numerous charitable organizations, including Wonderland. My photography can be seen at venphotos.com.
A Wonderland alum, I have worked at the center for two years, twice a week as a volunteer, and I enjoy doing it! I work on tasks such as shredding, filing papers, watering the plants, and vacuuming. I have also helped with the Wonderland Dinner & Auction in the spring and the Benefit Breakfast in the fall. I like working at Wonderland because it is nice to be able to help other people with their work.
I am 17 years old and a senior at Shorecrest High School in the Shoreline School District. In my free time, I enjoy reading books, watching movies/tv, playing the wii, and walking my dog. My favorite subjects in school are English and Math. My favorite foods are pizza and cheeseburgers. I live at home with my sister, mom, dad, dog, and cat!
I am a student at Inglemoor High School and will graduate in 2017. I ﬁrst came to Wonderland as a Teens in Public Service Intern in the summer of 2015 and had a very fulﬁlling experience doing both program and administrative work. I was surprised by how quickly and easily I was able to get involved in helping out with so many aspects of Wonderland, from preparing for and assisting in Play & Learn sessions, to ﬁling and ofﬁce help, to working on special development and fundraising events. Volunteer service is a really big part of my life, and I was excited to be able to make a real impact through my volunteer work at Wonderland. I hope that I’ll be able to return and volunteer more regularly at Wonderland, and I am looking forward to seeing what they accomplish in the coming years!
My name is Marisol, and I am currently a student at Shoreline Community College. I love people, music, and writing and speak Spanish as a second language. I want to dedicate my life to helping others, so I hope to learn all I can and contribute as much as possible as a volunteer at Wonderland.
