Favorite part about volunteering?
Being with the people and knowing that everybody’s here to help those who need it.

What is one of your favorite stories or memories from volunteering?
When I was working the Tree of Life one year I was sitting there and all of a sudden someone came up behind me and gave me a peck on the cheek. I was so startled. I turned around and it was this young gentleman, he was about 19 or 20. He said, “That’s for all the good and the help you did for my grandmother when she was in hospice.” That left such a wonderful feeling. That’s embedded in my memory.
