Meet Christy Eubanks, winner of the SRP President’s Volunteer Spirit Award

This is the second installation in a series of posts about the winners of SRP’s 2019 President’s Volunteer Spirit Awards.

Christy Eubanks works in the Strategic Energy Management department at SRP. She is proud to give back to Make-a-Wish after the foundation touched her family’s life.

Making wishes come true for sick children

Helping make the wishes of critically ill children come true is something that’s very personal for Christy Eubanks. Her grandson, who is in remission from a rare liver cancer, was the recipient of a Make-A-Wish® in 2014.

Watching a community unite to grant his wish changed his life — and the life of her entire family — and inspired Eubanks to begin volunteering with the organization. In just over a year’s time, she has volunteered over 100 hours at Make-A-Wish, helping grant four wishes to “wish kids.”

Eubanks has been so moved by the joy the organization’s loving mission provides that she is recruiting others to volunteer for the organization so they can help even more sick children. Here Christy shared her passion for helping kids in her own words.
