I've been a volunteer with the program for almost 15 years. I started out as avolunteer driver when our son was a preschooler. I wanted to make a difference and give back to the community. It was an activity we did enjoyed and did together and it made a differnece in pour lives as well as the lives of the clients. I just recently retired from the board of directors due to term limits aafter serving as chairperson for 9 years and I still volunteer every Monday as a day chair ensuring the other routes are covered by volunteers and often acting as a substitute driver then and other days. This is a great way to hlep seniors and other physically challenged people remain living independently in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. Over the years I have met many wonderful people through my volunteer experience , clients, volunteers and NMoW staff.
