Name: Jessica McCarrey

Hometown: Boise, Idaho

Why did you choose to become an AmeriCorps Vista?

I became a VSA to give back to my community and to help provide meals for the kids in Boise who need it and to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to play and eat.

What do you like about Picnic in the Park?

My favorite part of PIP is the rewarding feeling I get knowing I helped make a difference in at least one kid's life each day.

What's next? Future plans?

I hope to continue to love and serve my community wherever I am as well as encourage others to do so.
