Volunteer Staff Spotlight!
Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington (SMGW) would like to recognize Jabriel Hasan for his invaluable service over the past four months. His last day was Friday, May 1, and already his dedication and beaming smile are sorely missed. A recent graduate of Marymount University with a bachelor’s degree in communications, he exceeded all expectations in his role as the communication and development intern. Other than performing the typical tasks required of the position, he went above and beyond to initiate a relationship between Samaritan Ministry and St. Paul’s Parish on K Street. He is also a member of Grate Patrol, an outreach program through St. Paul’s Parish that provides healthy food to the homeless population during the weekend. Because of this program and its commitment to homeless outreach, Jabriel recognized that it would resonate with the work and values of Samaritan Ministry.
Jabriel also worked tirelessly to help prepare for the Next Step Breakfast in March. He felt that seeing all the parishes come together for the event was special and created a warm environment. His time at SMGW has allowed him to walk the path toward the fullness of his calling. “I want to dedicate my life and career to service and social justice,” said Jabriel, “My soul was put here to do such work. I believe God has instilled a value in me for compassion, justice, and desire for social good.”
Since graduating, Jabriel joined the United States Peace Corps. He is living and serving in the country of Ethiopia for 27 months and is very excited for such an opportunity. He would like to thank all the staff and volunteers at SMGW, and we in turn wish him the best of luck!
