Pam WP

A seamstress by trade, Pam began working with us at our Greentree Family Shelter in 2016. Since that time and always accompanied by her trusty sewing machine, Pam has logged hundreds of volunteer hours with us.  “Miss Pam,” as she is called by NCCF clients and staff, is one of our most consistent volunteers. Faithfully appearing every Wednesday at 3:30 pm, residents eagerly await her arrival.

“No one ever asks when “Miss Pam” is coming because they know they can count on her.  Each week she offers residents a smile and an opportunity to alter or enhance their clothing. This simple offer has a profound effect on the comfort of those who reside at our shelter. “

Dahlia Levin, Director or External Affairs

Although NCCF provides access to a donation center and boutique where clients can find clothing free-of-charge, often that clothing is not the right size, or the most fashionable option. However, under the care and skill of Pam these items are given new life as a garment and customized for the needs of our clients. She has created a special pillow out of a t-shirt for a child; taken-in and hemmed slacks for a client going on an important interview; and added sparkle to a sweatshirt for the 100th day of school. The contributions of “Miss Pam,” matter deeply to the children, youth, and families we serve. Pamela Mintz embodies the spirit of NCCF’s mission to give our residents and clients the means and opportunity to achieve their own goals. Her work at the shelter empowers people and allows them to thrive in their own right.
