Halsey - It’s My Turn to Give Back

March 10th, 2020

When Halsey Blocher was just 3 years old she began receiving physical and occupational therapy at Turnstone. Today, at 22, Halsey is finding new ways to give back to the community she’s grown up in.

Halsey shared that she was overfilled with gratitude for all of the opportunities Turnstone provides for individuals with disabilities, like herself. She says she found herself wanting to give back to a place that gives so much to others.

When Halsey isn’t spending time in the Adult Day Service program, or volunteering with the clients in the Memory Care Program, she volunteers with Turnstone’s Development team. When looking for ways she could give back to Turnstone, she realized she could offer important support for fundraising and event planning projects.

As a development volunteer over the last year and a half, Halsey has helped coordinate events including the Board of Director’s Gala and Casino Night. Halsey, a talented communicator and writer, applies her strengths to help the team follow up with donors, making phone calls and sending emails.

In addition to serving the Turnstone community, Halsey is applying these talents to support others with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), as a freelance writer for SMA News Today.

Halsey has made the most of her talents and abilities, finding ways she can use them to serve others. For Halsey, it’s her Turn to give back.
