Rating: 5

I have been on the Board of Directors, have been a volunteer and have been Chair of Fundraising. As a volunteer I have planted flower bulbs, I have raked leaves, I have transported to doctor and dentist appointments, hair appointments, to and from dialysis sessions and have done house cleaning and grocery shopping for elderly or disabled persons in our community. The appreciation from these folks is special. They explain that these things we do for them allow them to stay out of assisted living or nursing home facilities. The services we provide free of charge allow them to remain independent.
