Why I Volunteer: Mailyn Ramirez

Mailyn Ramirez is the mother of five-year member, Sabrina Thomas. She has been volunteering for Pacific Crest since 2012.

“I have always thought that donating time is just as valuable as donating money. I started volunteering for Pacific Crest in 2012. I quickly learned how much time and energy is needed to run such an intricate organization that helps support many gifted youths to showcase and expand their talent. Volunteers are the life support of PC.”

“Without volunteers, it would be difficult to feed almost 200 people during camps and tour, host a show at the Rose Bowl, and transport the performer’s equipment across the country to their competitions. Volunteering has been a great way to see my daughter in action, support the entire corps, visit many of our beautiful states, and make valuable friendships and memories.”

“I encourage everyone who has any spare time and an appreciation for the art of music and assisting in the further development of talented performers, to volunteer for this wonderful organization. There are many opportunities to help. I have volunteered for the health team, uniform team, and food service (K-Crew). Veteran volunteers are here to support you and show you the ropes. All you have to do is sign up and be a part of the Pacific Crest family!”
