Learning Center Experience
Jessica Anker has always loved to help others. As
a high school student, she started volunteering her time to people in need, and
for nearly 10 years she has been helping put together food baskets for the
hungry around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
At an early age, Jessica learned the importance of giving back to the community
and helping others in need. “My dad was a trash hauler and had to go on
disability,” she says. “It wasn’t easy. I have two other siblings. My parents

Jessica understands the
struggles people can face and is happy to help others. “So many people are
struggling to put food on the table, especially in today’s economy,” she said. “Helping
the less fortunate reminds me of how blessed I am and allows me to appreciate
the little things that you can easily take for granted.”
Around the holidays, Jessica always makes time to help the local Salvation Army and Rotary Club put
together and distribute food baskets for the hungry during Christmas. She also helps
the Salvation Army with its local Coats for Kids drive by collecting gently
used or new winter coats to keep kids warm during these cold winter months.
Last month, Jessica
helped serve Thanksgiving dinner
for nearly 800 homeless people through the Salvation Army. “The look on the
faces of the people we help just says it all,” she says. “I
don’t need anything more!”
“It simply warms my heart
to put a smile on someone’s face. A small ‘thank you’ from a mom, dad, or child
can really change your day!”
In addition to
volunteering, Jessica is busy earning her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Kaplan University—and would be the second
in her family to earn a college degree. Her goal is to be a teacher and help
at-risk children. Jessica also works as a nanny for her 2-year-old
