Volunteer Jenny Keeton Redefines Generosity

By Leigh Harper, January 3, 2017

Volunteering is a way of life for Jenny Keeton. Keeton, who grew up witnessing her parents and grandparents volunteer, gives up to 15 hours each week serving faith-based organizations like SafeHouse Outreach and Passion City Church in metro Atlanta. Professionally, she’s worked in education for 22 years and is currently a spiritual formation director at a private school. She shared with us a few stories and lessons she’s gathered throughout her years of service.

What organizations do you volunteer with on a regular basis?

I serve friends in a state of homelessness once a month with SafeHouse Outreach; I’ve served at Passion Conferences since 2008 and at Passion City Church for several years; and I serve once a month with Out of Darkness (which recently merged with Atlanta Dream Center) to reach out to women who dance in clubs in downtown Atlanta. I’ve also served at one-off events like Catalyst and gone on several mission trips.

 

Where have you traveled to volunteer?

Houston; Swaziland; Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina; Lexington, Kentucky; and Brazil.
