Meet Tim Robbins, Mystic Aquarium’s IT Manager. He joined the Aquarium in summer of 1995 just a year after volunteering in the AmeriCorps program. His main responsibilities are to help support computers, phones and network at Mystic Aquarium.
Tim began donating blood when he was in high school when it was required he presents a parental permission slip. You can only donate a pint of whole blood every 56 days, so it takes most people a couple years of regular donations to reach a gallon. He’s on his way to 14 gallons!
He says that it helps people and makes you feel good. Find something you like to do and that could make a difference. For some it might be coaching or mentoring, others may serve on a board of directors or serve meals. Every individual has something to offer to fill unmet needs in our community.
