February V.I.V. - Charity Rotinski

The VLP is pleased to recognize Charity Rotinski as this month’s V.I.V. – Very Important Volunteer.

Charity is currently a student at Spokane Community College pursuing her paralegal degree and plans to start the Limited Licensed Legal Technician program in the fall of 2020.

Charity assists the VLP in numerous ways, from conducting client intakes to helping with annual events like the VLP Holiday Auction. Of all her volunteer activities with the VLP, Charity’s favorite is supporting clients at legal advice clinics. According to Charity, “So many people come to these clinics feeling lost and overwhelmed. I enjoy helping them navigate their paperwork and helping them see that they are not alone.”

For as long as she can remember, Charity has had a passion for serving others. She has sought to instill her passion for service in her five children; they often volunteer as a family. When she had the opportunity to volunteer for the VLP, she was “thrilled.”

When asked why she volunteers for the VLP, Charity said, “I want to help people navigate what can be the most stressful and overwhelming experience of their lives, while empowering them to gain the confidence they need to work through their legal issues.”

Thank you for all your hard work, Charity! We appreciate the positive difference you make for the VLP and its clients.
