Among her many volunteer efforts, Itami belongs to the Salt Lake City chapter of the Assistance League, a national non-profit organization that seeks to help low-income families.
The Assistance League operates a thrift store at 2090 E. 3300 South, where each member logs time. The organization also offers a number of programs, including Book Bank, that makes books available to 3- and 4-year-olds.
Interacting with the less fortunate through Book Bank has broadened Itami horizons, she said.
"You get so much back in return and become more sensitive to your environment," she said. "It’s an exciting opportunity."
