Sarah has been with Kars4Kids for nearly two years. One of our great donation specialists, she graciously agreed to an interview!
Hi Sarah! What is it that you do here at Kars4Kids?
Basically, I take donations over the phone, and “chat” with our donors on our website. In general, I’m part of the customer service team here at Kars4Kids.
How do your personal qualities help you do such a great job here?
Well, I think my ability to focus on the task at hand helps a lot.
When someone calls about donating a car, they’re often hesitant about a number of issues. They’re not sure if the car’s good enough, if they need the title – you name it!
My job is to reassure the donors and guide the conversation to the right place – donating a car for the kids.
For example, sometimes the donor might be hesitant to donate his car because he’s so attached to it! Like, it might have been his grandfather’s or something. My job is to reassure him that he’s making the right decision by giving it to Kars4Kids.
And what do you especially enjoy about working for Kars4Kids?
I like the fact that I can use my particular talents for something worthwhile! I feel like I’m good at what I do, and that’s very important.
I also really enjoy the work environment around here. I always feel like there’s someone who “has my back,” and I can rely on my co-workers to help finish the job.
Working here has taught me the importance of teamwork! It’s amazing what can be accomplished when a group is working toward one goal.
Do you have any outside interests?
Well, I like writing, the creative kind. I like writing short stories and poetry.
Hmm, maybe you can post something on our blog…!
And what do you like to do for fun?
I like nature, taking long walks in the park and visiting well-kept gardens. Aquariums and beaches are also a favorite of mine. I guess I like quieter things rather than thrilling adventures! I also enjoy socializing, baking and cooking.
To me, the truly important things in life are friends and family. Spending time with them gives me a warm feeling of support and connection.
Sarah, thank you so much for your time!
